In 2002, Sarah Kleespies started extensive training to become a dog and cat groomer. She worked in a small mom and pop shop for three years to fine tune her hand scissoring skills, as well as her "breed standard cuts" until the shop was sold. In 2005, Sarah went on to work in a kennel, which specialized in boarding, day care, and grooming dogs and cats. For the next two years, she learned different styling techniques and how to handle difficult pets.
After moving to Florida, Sarah worked in a vet’s office as a groomer, where she was trained in medical and sedation grooming. Also in Florida, Sarah worked for a national chain pet store where she managed the grooming salon with a staff of six groomers. In 2009, Sarah moved back to New Jersey and started working for Just 4 Paws Pet Spa. At Just 4 Paws Pet Spa, Sarah was the mobile groomer and managed the mobile grooming division.
In 2011, Sarah competed in the mixed breed styling competition at Intergroom 2011. Sarah is also a member of the NCGAA National Cat Groomers Association of America and attends monthly seminars to keep her skills and techniques fresh in order to further her knowledge.
In 2013 Sarah purchased the mobile grooming division of Just 4 Paws Pet Spa and has successfully been expanding the service offerings and client base.
