ASHLEY RICHARDSONCertified Professional Groomer/Instructor
Animals have always been my biggest passion in life, and grooming is a great artistic outlet for me. I started working in groom shops as a bather at 16, and by 18 I was a certified dog and cat groomer. Central pet is my 4th grooming home, and I’m ecstatic to be working with such a great crew! I’ve learned a wide variety of techniques since I began in 2007, and take great pride in my scissor work and blending ability. My favorite breeds to work on are standard poodles, Bouviers, and Airedales. I love getting to know my clients and building a strong bond with their pet. It’s a great feeling to see a dog walk out of the shop with confidence in its step.
PATRICIA GUTIERREZGeneral Manager – Play/ Professional Groomer
I’m always working towards learning new things and currently have an Associates degree in Business and a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. I joined the Central Pet family in 2015 as a kennel technician before becoming a groomer. I have multiple dogs and cats and also foster pets through 2 local organizations. I became a groomer because I love helping pets look and feel their best!
ANGELA COCKBURNProfessional Groomer
I am an animal lover who made that a life passion. My world revolves around the love and care of animals. I groom, train, show, compete in performance events, and perform massage and calming techniques. I have a long history working in professional kennels, veterinary hospitals and private shops, with show handlers, veterinarians and other grooming professionals. I love to advance my knowledge at every opportunity. When a person’s pet is with me, it is treated as my own. I have done rescue, reform, rehab, and re-home. I feel as though these gifts were given to me as my purpose in life.
I have been animal obsessed since I was a little kid. I participated in 4-H and FFA all throughout high school showing dogs, rabbits, and pigs. After graduating, I went on to become a Veterinarian Technician for two years. When I realized that was not quite my passion but I still wanted to work with animals, I found grooming and absolutely love it. I really enjoy getting to know each dog I get to work with and having the opportunity to build a relationship with them as I continue to see them. I really enjoy grooming Golden Retrievers and Pomeranians. I hope that I have the chance to truly show you my passion through dog grooming.
