Melissa at Hobart Location

Melissa Norton

Pet Stylist

Melissa has been grooming since 2021 and bathing since 2013. She started her grooming journey in San Diego.  There she was originally a cosmetologist. She decided to combine her two loves of styling and animals into one job! Melissa has loved animals ever since she was little. 

Her hobbies include art and  home renovations. Outside of works she spends her time being a mom to her wonderful three little girls. She has two pets. One is a German shepherd/lab mix named Maverick and the other is a white standard poodle named Ace. 

Her greatest accomplishment is being a great groomer! She feels has gained a lot of confidence in her skills through years of hard work! Melissa’s favorite part about grooming is getting to see all the unique personalities of the dogs and transforming the dog during their spa day.
