Lisa grew up in Illinois and moved to Florida in 2000. Lisa has been grooming for over 17 years now and is still loving it! She has always been an animal lover and knew that she wanted to work with animals for a living. Her first job was at a grooming shop as a bather and from there she enrolled in The Academy of Animal Arts. There, they not only taught grooming and styling but also about different breed and temperaments, techniques on how to handle difficult or aggressive dogs, and what to do in case of a medical emergency. Lisa graduated from the Academy in 2005 and went straight into grooming. Lisa has been working for The Lodge for the past 10 years and feels so blessed to have the greatest clients. In her free time Lisa also enjoys spending time with her family and pets, and also is an avid squirrel rescue and rehabilitator!
