Aloha StaffKelly, Groomer

Kelly is one of our phenomenal Groomers here at Aloha Pet and Bird Hospital. She joined our kennel staff team full time in July of 2018 and has had over 22 years of experience in the animal related field. Before bringing her talents to Aloha Kelly worked for a horse and carriage company where she began developing her passions for working with animals. She has been grooming animals since 1998, and loves being able to interact with animals and helping them feel better, refreshed, and more comfortable after a groom.

Some of Kelly’s primary daily responsibilities include maintaining our amazing patients’ physical appearances by brushing and cutting fur, clipping nails, cleaning ears, bathing, drying, and styling the patient’s fur. Kelly finds it very satisfying seeing our clients’ reactions when they come to pick up their newly groomed and clean pets. “I love how pet friendly and family-oriented Aloha Pet and Bird Hospital is,” Kelly says. “It’s great how pets are able to get their specific needs met.”

Away from the hospital, Kelly likes to take her dogs to the beach or to the dog park. She owns an adorable doodle, named Charlie, and two cats, named Ragnar and Baby Ragnar.
