Jessica Spyker’s passion for animals started at a very young age. Once in school she quickly took to the visual arts and studied intensely for many years; by college her intensity for the arts became too much. Over a decade ago, she rediscovered her love of animals and soon fell into grooming.
In 2003 she began training with Lancy Woo, owner of VIP Grooming in San Francisco. Lancy is a woman who, like herself, sees the art and intimacy of grooming. In 2007 Jessica and VIP won “Best of the Bay” for dog grooming.
As her journey continues in the industry she always enjoys connecting with customers; she strives to provide the client with desired results and is simultaneously committed to doing what is best for the dog. One guiding principle in business and life is her desire to continuously improve. She is passionate about grooming and is committed to treating animals and people with sincere respect.
Danielle Cruz has had a great fondness for all types of animals all of her life. This love eventually led her to work and training with Master Groomer Judy Eidemiller. Thirteen years later she has honed a very meticulous and masterful skill.
Throughout her career she has had vast experience working in virtually all types of business environments and with a broad range of animals. She also has ample experience working with special cases such as puppies, geriatric dogs, disabled dogs and dogs with moderate to severe health conditions. Her knowledge of the industry along with her innate business sense has driven her for some time to take her ambition and abilities to the next level.
She is a devoted mother to two beautiful and imaginative children and spends her spare time hiking, camping, and enjoying the company of friends and family.
