MEET THE TEAM
I grew up loving animals and aspiring to become a veterinarian. I have volunteered around several places including but not limited to zoos and veterinary practices. I worked as a veterinary technician for several years and there learned a lot that I still carry with me. After leaving the veterinary world, is when I became a groomer. I always wanted to be the one to do the shaving on the animals when I was a technician so I knew that grooming would just fit right in.
I learned under another groomer for a while and then started branching out on my own to pick up new tips and techniques. I have now been grooming since 2015 and still love every second of it. I love how I can be creative every day and that my job is never monotonous. I have my bachelors degree in Zoology through Friends University and am AKC SAFE, Fear Free & CPR certified groomer. I always pursue relevant certificates and I love to learn new things that will help me create a better outcome and experience for you and your pet. I wouldn't say I have a favorite breed or animal I like to work on but by far the most rewarding are the difficult dogs that I have been able to rehabilitate. <3
I pride myself on the high-standard of care and services that I offer. I have a number of clients who have become more like family, and customers who consider me to be an integral member of their family. I hope I get the chance to meet your lovely pet soon.
I’m Chelcey, I was born and raised Oregon. When I was younger I had a dream of becoming a veterinarian, or working with animals in general. After high school, I went to PennFoster, for my associates in Veterinarian Technology, then got my grooming certificate sometime after. I started working at RC Kennels as a kennel assistant and worked my way up to grooming, was there for a year. Then I moved to Hutchinson with my Fiancé and kids, and met Holly at Bark Place back in 2020, who I’ve been working under since then to better my grooming skills! Chelcey is CPR Groomer Certified.
