Darla Greer, Instructor

American Grooming Academy

I'm an AGA graduate and I'm an instructor at American Grooming. Upon graduation I was hired at a salon where I groomed for a couple years before coming back to AGA as a professional groomer. A few months passed and we discovered that I had a knack for teaching and working with the students. Which is how I became an instructor. When I'm not teaching grooming I'm at home with my kids and my 4 dogs and 1 cat. I'm currently working on my master groomers certification and Instructor certification through “Canine Approved Groomers.”
