    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: After much time searching for my “dream job”, I decided to combine my love of all things furry with a knack for working with my hands. My name is Hannah. I am a Certified Dog Groomer from Happy Paws Unleashed, a professional grooming school in southern Maine. Raised in Maine, I have strong family ties. I enjoy riding horses, hiking, and warm sunny days at the beach. My occupations vary from working as a stern man on my grandfathers lobster boat to forging silver as a metal smith. My best friend is a golden retriever named Disko. She is the light of my life (and well groomed if I don't say so myself!)

    It is my goal to make your dog happy and comfortable during the grooming process. I have a quiet, gentle, but firm touch and feel it is important to establish a good relationship between myself and the dogs that I groom. A well groomed dog is a happy dog. I look forward to meeting with you and getting to know your furry friend.

    My pets: Golden Retriever, Disko
