Alicia's story

My name is Alicia and I am the owner/groomer of Zen Pets LLC! Ever since I was a young kid, I had always dreamt of working with animals. I didn't have a dog when I was growing up so I would beg my neighbors who had dogs to let me walk and brush them! I began working in dog kennels and dog daycares as soon as I was old enough and eventually learned how to groom pets professionally. My career took a different turn and I ended up working as a Store Manager for a large retailer for over 17 years. This helped build my business acumen and prepared me to eventually open my own business. I left my full-time retail job of over 17 years in 2020 to open my own pet grooming salon and to accomplish my dream of working with animals each day. It has been a great success and I am already unable to keep up with client demand! Purchasing a new tub, drying cages and an adjustable grooming table will allow me to work more efficiently so that I can groom more pets in a day.
