Pet Grooming Mentor in Temecula

When working toward the goal of becoming an Advanced Pet Stylist in Temecula, having a mentor that helps you toward your goal is crucial. The leaders of American Grooming Academy have had mentors that helped them with learning and developing their pet grooming and pet styling skills and understand and support forming bonds with their students, not only for the time they are attending American Grooming Academy, but for life long education and friendship. Over the holidays, Angela Clark had a chance to visit her pet grooming stylist mentor, Yvonne De Santis. Over thirty years ago, Yvonne was Angela’s first mentor in pet grooming.

Angela worked under Yvonne, and trained to become a Pet Stylist. Angela worked as a bather/brusher for Kenar Pet Resort of Carmichael, CA in Sacramento County and Yvonne worked as a Pet groomer in California. Over the next 15 years, Yvonne and Angela worked close together and developed, not only a great working relationship, but also a friendship that has lasted nearly 40 years. Later, Yvonne became the founder and owner of Village Grooming of Fair Oaks, CA in Sacramento County, where she retired several years ago. This past holiday season, Angela had the opportunity to visit with her and share some past memories.

“Yvonne was not always easy as a mentor, trainer and boss, but today, I am grateful for the high standards she impressed upon me as a young Pet stylist.”
– Angela Clark
