Born in New Jersey, Sam moved to Clayton with her family when she was twelve and has been in Johnston County ever since. She started grooming at PetSmart the summer of 2014 after finishing grooming school. After 6 years of grooming at a corporate facility, she decided to expand her career and look for a place that catered to pets in a more comprehensive way. She found this at Carolina Ranch where she helps make dogs and cats feel much better with great haircuts and baths.
Recently married, Sam lives in Clayton with her husband, Johnny, a fun-loving Rottweiler, Hercules, 3 cool cats (Emily, Bruce and Oliver) and 1 bearded dragon, Spyro! When not grooming at the Ranch, Sam enjoys outdoor activities, shopping and quality family time.
