AMC Cascades Groomer

As your pet stylist I have over 12 years of experience working in salons around the DMV. Through this journey I discovered my love for dogs and cats.

My goal is to give you and your baby a wonderful experience and to have your pet so clean and looking so neat that you can’t help but to brag about our awesome service.

I’m confident that you and your pet will love me as you pet stylist. There’s no greater tip than to see you happy. I hope to see you in the near future.
