She is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and graduate of UNC-Greensboro with an Masters of Science in Exercise Science.

She attended Nanhall School of Grooming where she learned AKC breed standard grooming and pet style grooming as well as how to groom cats. She loves caring for dogs and cats and creating a positive, calm and safe grooming environment. Her favorite aspect of grooming is taking the the unique characteristics of each pet and bringing out his/her best attributes. Heather lives in Durham with her fur kids.
