I am a Plainfield native, grew up in South Jersey and returned to Plainfield in 1991. I’m married and have 2 beautiful daughters Delaney and Anna that you may occasionally see working here at the shop. We have 2 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, 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.

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.
