Ms. Nicole has been loving and succeeding in this industry for 18 years! She started her career in Tucson, AZ when she applied as a dog bather with no experience but loved the idea of working with dogs. It took no time at all for her to perfect those skills and realize what her goal would be: to pursue the world of dog grooming.
She stays motivated every day by her passion in making dogs look and feel better. "It's pretty awesome when a pet parent gets that look on their face when they see their dog." Her compassion has also led to giving rescued pups full grooming experiences through DITR's incentive program to work with local rescues.
Nicole understands how vital it is to continue to learn and grow as a groomer. She has taken numerous classes on Dog CPR, geriatric pups, coat and skin types and safe handling. In 2022, she participated in two world renowned Grooming Competitions, SuperZoo in Las Vegas, NV and Pet Pro Classic in Dallas, TX., and has plans for more competitions in the future!
Her beloved family consists of her three children. Both of her daughters, Destiny and Journey are pursuing careers where their inherited love for artisty will shine. Her son Chance is motivated by becoming prosperous so he can make a difference and help the homeless. In addition, the home is full of love for their pets: a Black Labrador, a Pitbull, a Blue Heeler, a Russell Terrier which she says were all "foster failures." Once they entered her home, they had found their forever home. She also has 2 Standard Poodles, a cat and bearded dragon. One of her Standard Poodles, Sir Mezzo, has lots of fans he met while participating in Nicole's grooming competitions.
Nicole loves make-up artistry, bowling and all music. Her favorite quote is; "We can't always choose the music life plays for us but we can choose how to dance."
