Meet Our Groomers!
Tish has been an avid animal lover all of her life and started her career working with
animals in a veterinary setting in 1990. After graduating from The Georgia Academy of
Pet Styling in 1996, Tish groomed at a veterinary clinic in Norcross for 5 years before
creating her own business Tish’s Loving Care Mobile Pet Grooming. In order to spend
more time with her young family, Tish sold this successful business, wrote a book (The
Mobile Pet Grooming Guide) and continued to groom pets at various shops, for several
rescue groups and in her home for her loyal clientele. In 2014, she decided it was time to grow again and began the journey of TLC Pet Spa!
Tish’s family consists of her supportive husband, 2 helpful children, 6 dogs, 4 cats, and 1
bird! In her rare free time, Tish likes to travel, read, go the movies and work in her yard. Tish also works with Davis Manufacturing (a company that makes great products for veterinarians and groomers) as a speaker at Grooming Continuing Education Seminars and at their trade show booths around the country as well as acting as a consultant for their new products for veterinarians and groomers.
Tish’s favorite part of her career is getting to know each pet over time and grooming
them throughout their lifetime.
Melissa has been a groomer for over 20 years and worked as a veterinary technician before that! She has worked with Tish for 15 years. Her favorite part of grooming is to "make a pet feel good".
Melissa has 2 dogs (a ShihTzu/Bichon and a Basset Hound) named Toby and Ethel May; 3 cats named Lanie, Twist and Tinker; and 3 kids named Peyton, Maddie and Steve (including her husband - LOL).
In her spare time, Melissa likes to travel, spend time with her family, go boating, bake yummy treats and love on some horses!
Melissa is a pleasure to work with because she is a team player and loves the animals so much!
Brittany joined TLC in March of 2017! She previously learned to groom and worked with her mother for 9 years at another grooming shop in the Duluth area. Her Mom has retired and sold her shop and Brittany decided it was a good time to make a move.
Brittany loves grooming and has always loved animals - so her career just makes sense! Brittany is often described as fun, bubbly and outgoing. Pets and clients just love her and TLC is glad to have her and her talents!
Brittany is the Mom to 2 human children - Nora who is 3 years old and Josie who is 2 years old - as well as 2 dogs! Roxy is a senior Pit Bull and Bo is a Beagle Mix.
Brittany looks forward to caring for your pet! She loves pampering pets she has known over the years as well as meeting new friends!
Jenny joined TLC Pet Spa in July 2017. She is a Georgia native and has been working with dogs in grooming and boarding since 2009. In 2013, she decided to get her formal education at The Paragon School of Grooming in Michigan which is when she began her professional grooming career. Jenny's favorite part of grooming is "working with so many beautiful breeds".
Jenny is the proud mother of a US Navy Sailor, Ryan; two daughters who attend Georgia State University, Peyton and Emily; Natalia attends FSU while Casey and Jayson are still in high school. Mila (7 years old) and Lina (5 years old) are the youngest of this blended family.
Jenny has 3 furry kids - a Boxer named Annie, a "crazy" Bull Terrier named Georgia and a Shih Tzu puppy named Winslow. In her free time, Jenny loves to workout with her husband, Pete, and play raquetball - but NOTHING beats having quality time with all of her kids in one place!
Kristen joined TLC in August 2018 with 7 years of grooming experience. She was looking for a salon that focused on quality over quantity which is exactly the way we feel at TLC! Her grooming skills are also very nice - the dogs she grooms are happy and look amazing!
Kristen is married with a 3 year old son. She has 2 dogs - an American Eskimo named Finnick and a Beagle puppy named Sullivan. She also has a cat named Ash. When Kristen is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, listening to audio books, shopping and studying her bible.
Kristen's favorite part of grooming is watching the makeover process for each pet and seeing how good they feel when they are finished! TLC is glad to have Kristen on our team!
