“Animals have been a deep passion and driving force in my life since I was a young child, growing up in rural Victoria, surrounded by farm animals! I have extensive experience with a broad range of domestic animals - from cats and dogs, to bunnies, guinea pigs, rats, house pigs and ferrets! 

Throughout my life I’ve always pursued improving the welfare of animals; I was a vegetarian at eight years of age, and became vegan when I became an adult. This is why my salon only uses vegan and cruelty-free products, as I believe that grooming animals should not come at the cost of other animals.

I try to see each unique pet through the eyes of their beloved pet-parent, accentuate their features and do what works best for the animal. My aspirations are to educate people on the benefits of grooming and help further the connection between
humans and animals."
