What is your job? Dog groomer to the stars
What charities do you support – and how?
NSALA (North Shore Animal League America)
One Picture Saves a Life
I support animal welfare organizations by giving grooming workshops to educate about the importance of grooming as a tool for early detection if most health issues helping low income families to keep pets healthy at lower cost, reducing the number of dogs being surrendered to shelters due to high vet bills. I also spend time teaching grooming to shelter volunteers around the country.
Why do you have a passion for this one in particular, is there a personal tie?
I'm lucky to be able to make a living working with what I love, and that is pets -- so supporting charities and projects that help the less lucky pets is my way to give back to them.
Is there a particular way you would want to encourage readers to be involved?
We all know how pets have the ability to heal us, but learning different ways to help them it heals them.
How would you define social responsibility?
This are the key words that I constantly refer to.
