Dog Groomer, Photographer, & Blogger
My name is Karen and I have 2 passions in my life – Animals and Beauty. The two are worlds apart I realise lol My goal in life is to improve the lives of animals, particularly dogs. One way I can do that is by teaching dog owners how to groom their dogs with love so it becomes an enjoyable experience for all involved. It might also save you a few pounds too :0) I have an Australian Labradoodle called Watson who is quite a character!
I worked for the NHS for 8 years in Medical Research based in a hospital, and loved my job immensely. Whilst there I gained my HND in Health Sciences as part of my Bsc but I sadly had to take redundancy from that role in 2015. I took that opportunity to re-train in my other passions, and as a result I have added the following qualifications and experience to my resume:
Diploma in Dog Grooming
Ran my own successful dog grooming business from home
Certificate in dog behaviour and psychology
Certificate in Canine first aid
Work as a professional photographer
I have also enjoyed creating and nurturing my two You Tube channels (one dogs, one beauty!) so you can always find me there if you want to know more - The Beauty Maverick and Watson the Warrior.
I hope that you will enjoy your chosen course, and I will always be here to answer any questions.
