Kelly Spagnolo, Groomer
Kelly has been grooming dogs (and cats) since Fall of 2006. Her passion for animals began at a very young age. She enjoyed the fascination of nature and how animals were emotionally connected to us as companions. She aspired to become a vet and take care of animals, but found herself leaning more into the fun and creativity of hair, so she became a pet groomer! The skills of the trade were not the easiest, but she have always welcomed the challenge, as it pushes her to do greater and learn from it. Any chance that she gets, she attends classes and seminars to further her skills and bring it to the grooming table. While not "show style", her grooms are of excellent quality. Her work excels with basic cuts and styles to suit every breed; from shaves, to scissoring, and even blending techniques. With each grooming service provided, your pet is pampered with a deep cleansing bath, full blow-dry, carefully cleansed ears, precise nail trims, thorough fur brushing, and gland expression. Kelly has been a team member with Pleasantville Animal Hospital of Fallston since Spring of 2013, and couldn't ask for a more loving family of co-workers! It has been the most amazing facility to boost her career and meet so many smiling faces and wagging tails. At Pleasantville, we truly are quite pleasant, and we honor our clients with the utmost respect and quality care as we should.
