Brandi is passionate about animals and the environment. She graduated with a diploma from The academy of Dog Grooming Arts in 2006. At Huckleberry’s, she has been proudly grooming dogs and cats for the past 10 years. Brandi is a true believer that, “If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life”. She looks forward to meeting you and your dog and/or cat. “Each day is open to possibilities to provide a dog or cat with a haircut that makes them feel good, look good and bring smiles home to their families.” Brandi, her husband Dan and two children have resided locally for 13 years. She thoroughly enjoys hiking with her children and exploring the great outdoors. She looks for opportunities to teach her boys about animals and their instinctual habits as well as different ways to preserve the Earth on which we live.
