Kate Tracy

Kate Tracy Groomer

Kate started grooming in 2012 after bouncing around in Penn State University and never really finding her niche. It wouldn't come until later when she discovered her total adoration for senior and special needs pets. When she left a big corporate shop where she first learned the basics to groom and went to a private shop it was there, she was able to slow down and learn how to work with paralyzed, special needs and post-op dogs who have had major surgeries such as ACL repairs and corrective spinal work. Kate has a deep love of all animals- she currently has one crazy dog and a cat. Outside of work Kate loves being outside- fishing, kayaking, and hiking are her favorite past times.
