Growing up on a farm in Gardner, Kansas, is where Lauren’s passion for animals, especially horses, originated. This passion led her to compete in horse shows and rodeos from childhood and up into her teen years. She was very active in her local 4-H Equestrian Team and CYA (Christian Youth Rodeo Association). Lauren had a growing interest in horse training and behavior and was given her own horse to train at the age of 12. Horse training was definitely a family calling, as both Lauren’s mother and aunt were professional horse trainers. Lauren volunteered at an Arabian horse farm and helped to train the horses all through middle school.
Lauren’s family moved to Louisburg, Kansas while she was in high school, where she discovered another talent and field of interest-art. She began taking every art class offered at school, and some twice-just for fun! After graduation, Lauren held a couple of jobs and she became very unhappy, as she wasn’t working with animals. She began working in the grooming department of a large pet retailer as a bather. She became fascinated with grooming and would assist and watch the groomers. This cultivated into her career choice – being a dog groomer.
Lauren began searching for a trade school to learn how to become a professional dog groomer. She was successful in her search and attended and graduated from Epec, The Grooming Project. Lauren gives credit and appreciation to the program and teachers describing the whole experience as, “amazing.” She is very happy with her choice of career, as it allows her to live her dream-her love of dogs, and the art of grooming.
When Lauren is not grooming dogs, she enjoys everything about the outdoors, especially hiking and camping. She is also a part of a local performance troupe called The Infernal Fire Grind Circus. She performs professionally with fire props, for example a hula hoop, and breathing fire. She has been honing these skills for nearly 6 years.
