Having qualified in 2008, I opened the Eastbourne grooming salon as a franchise within a national pet store. In 2009 the salon was taken in house by the company and I was offered the salon managers position. In May 2012 I was promoted to Senior Salon Manager responsible for 12 salons. I then decided to open my own salon in my home town of Hailsham. I am also a grooming assessor, mentor and trainer for new groomers entering the industry.
