Hello, my name is Lesa (L). I attended the San Diego Grooming Academy, where I was trained and graduated as a Professional Dog Groomer and Stylist. I am a member of the International Professional Groomers, INC. as an Advanced Certified Professional Groomer. I am currently working on my Master Groomer certification. I have certifications in Pet Safety & Safe Handling, Pet First Aid, and CPR. I enjoy learning new techniques and expanding my education by attending grooming classes and expos. Gentle Dog handling is a passion of mine. I enjoy working with nervous, senior and disabled dogs. I believe using fear-free techniques in a calm stress free environment benefits all dogs. I support the rescue community and have 2 rescued dogs, Sophia and Gracie. I left a career with California state government to pursue my dream of making a difference in the quality of dogs’ lives. Gentle Paws Mobile Dog Grooming is the realization of my dream.
