Over the next few weeks, I will be posting mini bios for each of the groomers at the salon. I am very fortunate to have such an amazing group of groomers here! So, I want to let everyone know how great they are!
Lonnie has been at the salon since 2002. She originally started as a bather/dryer. But, soon started grooming. She is compassionate, kind, and has so much consideration for each of her furry clients. She has participated in many seminars to continue learning in our industry. She loves her fellow co-workers and being around the dogs everyday. She is always willing to lend a hand whenever there is someone in need. She also enjoys the challenges of this field and that everyday is different. Each day has a new dog that she gets to help make comfortable and stylish! Even though she doesn't groom them, she LOVES cats. Whenever Bob and Carl are sporting hats for Toupee Tuesday, I can guarantee you that Lonnie made that hat. Carl loves her so much, that he actually sleeps on her table while she's grooming her dogs!
She has three cats of her own at home named Pippin, Luna, and Weasley. As you may be able to tell by her cats names, she is a huge Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fan. (Also, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Marvel, Battlestar Galactica, and Game of Thrones!) She also had two amazing and wonderful children.
Lonnie is my salon manager when I am away, and I would not be where I am today without her. She works her tail off here. I can not even begin to express how much I appreciate her. ❤️
