Sammi has always had a love for animals. She started out in 4-H winning many obedience, sheep herding and agility trials. After graduating high school she worked at a boarding kennel where her passion for dogs grew stronger. She always found herself in the grooming room asking a thousand questions. She’s always fascinated with grooming and desperately wanted to pursue a career as a top professional dog groomer.
After much investigation and determination, Sammi was lead to one of the country’s best teachers, Shaunna Bernardin, CMDG. After several years of apprenticing with Shaunna Bernardin, Sammi has become one of Canada’s top competitive groomers. As of right now she is sitting in the No. 4 spot on the Groom Team Canada point system for 2016. This is truly an amazing feat for such a young groomer. Sammi went to her first contest 4 years ago and won Best Overall and from then on she has been hooked. Sammi has been a successful grooming contest competitor ever since. Sammi has won 3 top all-around groomers and multiple gold medals. Sammi has a special talent as she excels in several classes with all breeds. She has dominated the hand strip class in the west for the last couple of years, winning multiple gold medals with her giant Schnauzers. Sammi is also one of the head speakers on the global groomer stage. She is very proud of the work that she has done on the Schnauzers.

My name is Cat. I have always loved animals and knew at a young age that I wanted to work with them. I’ve been grooming since 2009 when I was taught by a world-renowned groomer. I like to attend seminars and grooming competitions to further my knowledge and learn new techniques. I absolutely love dogs and have three of my own fur babies: Lucas my cocker/pom, James my Finnish Lapphund, and my newest addition Bella, a Shih Tzu.
