Laura J. Graham - Certified Professional Pet Stylist
After several positions at Petco as Grooming Assistant, Groomer, and Salon Manager, Laura has joined our team at the Shaker Hill Pet Spa. Laura received her Certified Professional Grooming certification in 2005 and also holds college degrees: BA English Literature, MA English Literature and PhD from UCLA in Theatre.
Laura says "after years of reading plays, analyzing characters and directing actors, it's fun and insightful to bring these skills to Pet Styling. Owners might be surprised to learn what performers their pets can be - The Drama Queen, The Tragic Prince, The Little Clown. Reading animals may not be as easy as reading plays, but they're far more lovable".
Visiting her cousin's horse farm in Greenville, NY and spending time at her family homestead in her native NYC are some of Laura's favorite things to do along with kayaking, cooking, gardening, creative writing and animal rescue. Members of Laura's animal kingdom include: Sasha a Pug mix, Stella an Amstaff, Papoose the Bull Terrier, Lily an English Pointer, Pinto a Beagle mix, Chaps a 17 yr. old Siamese, Harry the Lovebird, Athens the Parakeet and the smallest member Alphie, the Betta.
