About Michele


 

I am the owner of Sudz ‘N Style Mobile Dog Grooming LLC, established May, 2010 and headquartered in beautiful, peaceful Fountain Hills, my new home, where you always know when it is the top of the hour. I have a post-graduate degree in School Psychology and a diploma from Canine Clippers School of Pet Grooming in Dumfries, VA, two major accomplishments in my life signifying how my goals and direction have changed as the years have gone by. I have been grooming in Virginia for the past three years and, when I moved to Arizona in January, 2010, I decided to start my own dog grooming business by going mobile.So here I am, enjoying Arizona, the weather (yes I know summers are hot, but it’s a dry heat), the desert landscaping dotted with palm trees and saguaro and fruit trees, the mountain views, and enjoying the challenges and joys my new business offers.

·     I love dogs and I love grooming. I regularly attend workshops and seminars, such as Wag’n Tails Comprehensive Mobile Grooming Seminar and am active in my professions.  I have been impressed with the number of rescue groups here in Arizona and support them with my time and involvement.

  • My poodle, for example, came from Arizona Poodle Rescue (www.AZPOODLERESUCE.com).
  • I am also acquainted with Lucky Paws Shelter and the Arizona Pug Adoption and Rescue Network through a charity events.
  • I am a friend of ADOG, (www.adog.org) the Fountains Hills non-profit group supporting the local dog park, rescue organizations, and responsible pet ownership.
  • I volunteer at AAWL/SPCA
