I am a Plainfield native, grew up in South Jersey and returned to Plainfield in 1991. I’m married and have two beautiful daughters Delaney and Anna that you may occasionally see working here at the shop. We have two dogs- Squirt, a Jack Russell mix, and Boo, a Pit Bull. I enjoy spending time camping and boating with family and friends. Over 20 years ago I started out as a bather and received groomer training with my job. I have worked at a couple of local grooming salons in the area and decided to start my own business out of my home. After 3 years of grooming in my home I moved my business to the downtown area we have been growing ever since. I am very blessed to have a job that I love. I’m very proud to say that we don’t advertise much and most of our clients come from word of mouth. From past experience in grooming salons I knew I wanted to do something different. I want the grooming experience to be positive and gain a relationship with the dog. Through the years, I have realized that it is all about trust!
When the dog trusts me my job is easier and their experience is better.
Hello I’m Shannon
I have lived in Plainfield all of my life. I have two children, Kailey and Blain, and a Chihuahua named Gemma. We are a close knit bunch here at Katie’s and are not only co-workers but are good friends. I take pride in listening to your concerns and requests while taking care of your pets (aka family members). I handle the scheduling and records for your pet with the upmost pride and concern to make your experience with us the best of any grooming salon. If there is anything that I can do to help make your pets time here better, please do not hesitate to ask.
Hello, my name is Missy. In my spare time my boyfriend and I enjoy camping and being outdoors. I have been working at Katie’s since November of 2008. I have always loved being around animals ever since I was a little kid. Working here is great, I love the people I work with and I find this job to be very rewarding. It’s great at the end of the day to know you made your customers happy, and to see them smile when you give them their freshly groomed dog.
My name is Delaney, my mother is Katie and my sister is Anna. I graduated from Plainfield High School in May of 2017 then went straight to college in the fall, where I received my Associates degree in Criminal Justice. In my spare time I love to go on hikes with my boyfriend and my dog Stitch. I also enjoy going on bike rides, boating, and a lot of other outdoor activities. I also serve as an advisor for the Marion County Cadet Program. I am currently a bather but I am quickly learning how to groom. I love to see the transformation of your pet from the time it comes in to when our job is finished. Making you and your pet happy is what I love most.
Hello, my name is Anna. I have been working with my mom for 6 plus years. I started out as a bather and worked my way up into a grooming position. I am a 2020 graduate so as of right now I plan on working full time here until I decide on the trade school I would like to attend.
What I enjoy most is deshedding the dogs and seeing the transformation of how much better the dog feels and looks. I enjoy my co-workers and how they are like family. I also enjoy seeing my favorite loyal clients and meeting new ones too. I love spending my time doing photography, being outside and camping.
Hello, my name is Bekah. I’ve lived in Plainfield for 5 years with my husband Brad and my Australian Shepherd Bandit. I’ve always been very interested in animal care of all types. In addition to my dog, I also own tropical fish and reptiles. I began teaching myself to groom 3 years ago on my own dogs. I’ve been at Katie’s Grooming since 2017 and Katie has taught me what I know now and I love it! I love working with all dogs but am especially passionate about double-coated large breeds, as those are the ones I’ve owned. I love feeling challenged with new things and learning the latest techniques with grooming and dog care. When I’m not at work I spend my time going on adventures with my dog, hiking in state parks, and working with my other pets.
I have been a groomer for three years now. I've always loved animals , but dogs have been my favorite. Growing up I always had a dog; boxers and german shorthairs mostly. My first little dog required grooming and that is when I knew I wanted to make grooming my career. So, I completed my training and three years later I still love what I do!
I am happy that I was able to make that choice at a young age.
I now have four dogs of my own and I'm happily married to my best friend. We enjoy all outdoor activities and spending time with our little furry
I look forward to meeting you and providing quality grooming for your pets.
