Crystal picked up her first set of clippers in 1991 and fell in love with grooming. After grooming for a short time she moved into a career as a Veterinary Technician where she worked with exotic and domesticated pets.  Learning more about cats and dogs has really helped her to assist clients with health issues and steer them in the right direction.

Moving into the boarding business she started grooming more and more and decided that the boarding business took too much time from her grooming and she moved on and started Cat & Doggie Works in 2003.

Her specialty is cats; you could call her the cat whisperer!  She enjoys grooming all breeds of dog big and small.  She enjoys bike riding, hiking, is an avid baker and candy maker and grows a mean veggie garden.

She shares her home with her cats, chickens and tortoise. She has a passion for Monarchs and has a small plant nursery that specializes in native milkweed.
