Hi I’m Jess, Professional Dog Groomer since 2006 and Owner of Grooming By Jess!  Being raised around dog shows, I did obedience training with my sheltie Kelcie , and paying very close attention to all the professional cuts per breed was exciting to me. My mom took me under her wing at her own grooming salon in Upstate New York where I gained so much knowledge and worked at perfecting my skills.  I have enjoyed working hard at some of the best high volume salons over the years. Moving to Wilmington, NC has been a dream come true, I have my love of dogs and the beach all in one place.  They say love what you do and you will never work a day in your life, well I am here to say that I truly love what I do!  I am taking my business to the next level and opening my own grooming salon!!  I am over the top excited! I couldn’t have done it without my fur clients that I love as my own and all their owners, my friends and family.  

I am Certified in Pet CPR and known for my specialized de-matting techniques.  Shih Tzu’s, Pomeranians, Golden-doodles, Labradoodles, Large breeds, I groom them all.

My clients leave happy and I always get lots of kisses.

Make an appointment today.

Happy Pets and Happy Owners are my Goal.

See you soon,
