I love all animals! I have 5 cats and a Bernese Mountain dog myself. I have groomed for many years all types of animals. My full time job is working for the local postal service and I really enjoy getting to know all the people on my route and making them smile daily. In my free time I like to be active and explore nature, play the piano, draw, try out New Mexican restaurants and spend time with friends and family laughing and just enjoying life. Bonus if it involves a concert for any of the many genres of music I love!
Macey has been grooming for 3 years and thoroughly loves her job! She adores all breeds and all sizes, but especially loves working with the nervous furbabies! Macey will go to great lengths to ensure your dog is comfortable and well taken care of! She grew up as a huge animal lover. As a child, you could always find cuddling her boxers or attempting to nurse baby bunnies back to health. Now in her free time she loves to spend time with her family of 4 plus two kitties, attend concerts, and cook!

When she gets free time, she enjoys a lazy day on the sofa with her dogs. She also enjoys estate sales, refinishing furniture and collecting veterinary antiques.
Adrienne loves her job so much that we have a hard time getting her to go home. There is no job too big or too small for Adrienne. She can tackle anything. She enjoys spending her off time with her husband and their dog, Bertie .
Veterinary Assistant/Practice Manager
Corey has spent over 25 years working as a manager in the pet retail industry.
When she’s not working she enjoys spending her time with her two sons. She has a very big family (some by blood, some by love) that are very important to her. She has volunteered with shelters and been a part of the pet loving community for over 25 years.
Corey is excited to be part of a team that holds the same values she does and looks forward to learning how to expand her knowledge.
Sam has been grooming for over 15 years. She loves what she does and prides herself on making grooming a positive experience for both the pet and the client.
When she is not grooming, she is busy raising her 3 beautiful daughters with her husband and their 3 dogs and 1 cat.
Hello, I’m Kristina. My animal care experience really began as a kid showing sheep and rabbits and feeding every stray that would let me! Professionally I started as a bather at a grooming/boarding facility in the mid 90’s. From there I worked briefly as a veterinary assistant in both a day and emergency clinic. I learned a lot but was drawn back to grooming. I groomed at 3 vet clinics over the years while running my own business in my town. I have been working in my shop full time for long enough and I’m really looking forward to meeting new friends, 2 and 4 legged!
We have 4 acres that we share with our Missouri foxtrotter and our 11 dogs. 3 blue heelers, 2 mountain curs, and 6 bully/pitties. We are very involved in rescue and several of them were foster fails. Besides dogs I enjoy podcasts, audiobooks, planting flowers (especially coleus), and seeing our grandson when we can.
Anne has been in the veterinary field since 1985. Just out of high school, she joined the U.S. Army as an Animal Care Specialist. During this time, she traveled to Korea to assist in providing care to the Army’s largest kennel of Military Working Dogs. She also traveled to a stateside base to provide care of the Army’s Caisson horses and mules used for parades. She worked at several base clinics and cared for small animals as well. She was once in charge of a breeding colony of chinchillas, having over 300 females at one time.
After 13 years in the military, she moved to Oklahoma City and worked several years at a premiere 24-hour hospital. She gained invaluable experience in emergency medicine. In 2001, she returned to her hometown of Peoria to care for an ailing family member.
She worked previously with Dr. Springman, and when the opportunity arose to team up with her again she jumped at the chance.
Anne also shares her home with her wife, handicapped adult son, Benjamin, and 3 dogs.
On the occasion that she finds the time, she likes to do crafts and make cookie balls.
