Friendly blocks and stoops of Brooklyn where I grew up my sisters and I were always spotting a
hound looking shabby eating scraps from the garbage can. My basement became a hiding place from
the bitter cold for many of these dogs and cats. In the early 80's as an aspiring ballerina, dog and cat
grooming never crossed my mind, I was too focused on becoming a dancer. One afternoon I was
invited to an Animal Rights Demonstration in Bryant Park near 42 Street I was SHOCKED to
see such graphic pictures of the cruelty done to our furry friends. After that experience I couldn't just
sit around doing nothing about it, so I got involved with PETA as an Animal rights activist
petitioning and rallying in the streets of New York City. I became a voice for the voiceless
in defense of animals from the whales, baby seals, cats, dogs, Baboons and the furry Raccoons.
A few years later I stumbled upon a flyer, Dog Grooming School, I thought bows and painted
toes not for me on the otherhand I said, I could make house calls educate the people on these
issues and Pet nutrition. In 1990 I began my journey trimming, scrubbing dogs and cats and meeting
wonderful people too.
