Hello, my name is Angela, and I am a groomer for North Tampa Pet Hospital. I have been grooming for over 15+ years. I started as an animal caretaker, and I always knew from there my passion was to work with animals. On my days off I like to go visit the petting zoo or volunteer my time at the humane society and also go to the beach and enjoy the water. One of my major goals in life is that all animals have a happy home.
I started grooming more than 15 years ago in San Diego, CA. I’m so happy to be back home in Florida and to be a part of SOPH, where I can continue doing what I love!
I have a cute little sassy Terrier mix named Emmy and my cat’s name is Kitty. Both are rescues.
When I’m not grooming, I enjoy baking, decorating, and biking.
