Grooming Instructor

PIP Certified Groomer

Meet Taylor..... From a young age I knew I wanted to work with animals. I started at Pets in Paradise at age 16 as a bather and started to learn about grooming and taking care of the puppies. After attending grooming academy I have been lucky enough to work side by side with my parents in our family passion and business.




PIP Certified Groomer

I’ve always had a love for dogs as they have always been a part of my family since a young age. My passion for grooming started after my family and I fostered dogs after hurricane sandy by bathing and trimming them up to find their forever homes. I knew after that I wanted to become a groomer. I finished grooming academy in 2018 with my certification and became a part of the pip family shortly after. My love dogs for dogs grew even more after the many years I’ve been here and all the connections I’ve made with clients and their fury friends. Officially becoming manager of pets in paradise has helped me grow as a better person and groomer. I look forward to continue my journey here at pip and help make everyone’s fury friends feel pampered and most importantly loved after their spa day.

PIP Certified Groomer

My name is Kim and i am a groomer at Pets in Paradise. My journey really started when our family welcomed our maltese, Boo into the family. Ever since then i have wanted to work more with dogs and show them the same care and love we give to Boo. In 2017 i attended the Dog Grooming School of Pennsylvania where i fell in love with grooming. I continue to attend classes in order to learn and improve my skills. Being a groomer at Pets in Paradise, everyone is so helpful and kind to each other and we genuinely care for each dog that walks through the door. We want each dog to have the most comfortable and best experience possible. I carry this same attitude as i want to grow as a groomer so that each dog that i groom leaves happy.

Animals have always been the part of my life that I've felt most comfortable in.   I have been grooming for 10 years, and my favorite part about that is starting my new friendship with your dog so we'll both enjoy the grooming process, together. I pride myself in keeping your pet safe and making them look wonderful!

PIP Certified Bather/

Grooming Assistant

Hi I'm Tori!!! I am the bather at Pets in Paradise AKA "The Bath Master," and I handle the the bath dogs that come through the shop! I have been working with dogs since 2019 and it's something that has brought me a lot of joy over the years. I first worked as a walker on WAG, the dog walking app, and then worked at a couple of doggie daycares until eventually coming here. I've been working here since 2022 now and I honestly couldn't be happier, the environment and the animals continue to make me so happy to be in this line of work. Fun fact about me, I also knit and have some doggie sweaters for sale that can be found in the cold months at the front of the store in a bunch of different fun colors. Some even have hats in similar colors so you and your best friend can be matching and warm together! Business cards for my knitting business can also be found up front and I am open for knitting commissions if you reach out to me via email or my IG, both listed on my card. I am also an artist and a body builder!!! The dogs give me a ton of extra exercise on a regular basis!!!! I look forward to meeting you and your best friend!!!!

In addition, having a few grown kids and grand babies has taught me patience….lots and lots of it. 

Being a member here at PiP has turned a new leaf in my second half of life. 

I take pride in what I do, so thank you for trusting me with your precious fur baby! I promise to ALWAYS do my very best to make them feel loved and make their spa day super special each and every time  

They’re lucky to have you, And so am I

I’ve always known that I wanted to do something with animals and, after attending the NJ Dog Grooming School, I found my passion in dog grooming. After graduation I became apart of the Pets in Paradise family, where I have continued to learn and grow. I have enjoyed getting to meet so many fur babies and building relationships with each pup and pup parent! I strive to give each pup the best groom I can and make it as comfortable as I can! I look forward to meeting you and your pup too!

After taking the NJ Dog Grooming course I knew I had the passion to continue learning and growing. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies at PIP!
