Solving the Disconnect Between Groomer and Client

Rachel Vedder helps three sides of the grooming community: The pets, the groomers and the customers. Her success comes from being able to navigate all these groups, providing high-quality experience for her pets, a detailed and collaborative effort for her clients, and knowledge for her fellow groomers. She takes every moment as a learning opportunity, and invests in herself for her future.

"In my 15 years as a groomer, one of the things I enjoy the most is training new groomers and teaching them new tricks. The look they get on their faces and the excitement in their voices when they see they did a great job is very rewarding."
