Meet Dee, who’s just joined our Stream Valley family this July! Originally from New York, Dee moved to Florida and went to grooming school in West Palm Beach. There, she specialized in standard poodles and perfected her skills for a wide variety of breeds. She loves putting her 13+ years of grooming experience to good use! Dee has 10 years of working in corporate grooming as well as 3 years in private grooming. Now, she resides here in the beautiful state of Virginia and is happy to care for the grooming needs of our wonderful clients at Stream Valley Veterinary Hospital.
Outside of work, Dee is a proud mom of 3 grown boys and her 3 year old Havanese named Lucy. She enjoys being outside and reconnecting with nature. She loves horses too. Dee says she’ll miss the peaceful beaches in Florida, but she still loves it in Virginia! Her personal goal is to learn everything that she can here. She’s very excited for the opportunity to get to know everyone in the Stream Valley family!
