Sue Rosenberg

My favorite thing about being in the grooming field is the daily interaction with animals. I’ve always been drawn to dogs and cats no matter where I go so there is no other job I can imagine doing than this one – I get to see so many pets every day! It’s fun for me to establish relationships with the pets and be able to maintain the haircuts that make them so cute. I fall in love with the pets at work every day and our clients’ animals really start to feel like my own!
