Ally began grooming in 2016 in Tacoma, Washington after she decided to leave her passion for journalism behind and pursue her childhood dream of working with animals. When she discovered grooming was a sprawling career with many facets to pour her creativity into, she was inspired. Since then, she has pursued continued education by way of grooming expos, private lessons and seminars. This led her to apply to work with the infamous Macie Pisa and come to work in Buffalo. She currently has 2 certifications through National Dog Groomers Association of America — Non-Sporting and Terriers — and is working towards her Sporting and Master Certification. She finds it hard to hide her enthusiasm for breed trims, Asian Fusion styles and creative color design. She loves to make cute dogs even cuter and bring out their personalities and quirks.
