Adopt & Shop Culver City is excited to welcome a new groomer to our dedicated team of staff members.  Meet Lisa!

Lisa’s passion for animals is evident in everything she does. She has two rescue dogs of her own – Whoopie, a pit bull/Labrador mix; and Reggae, an American Stafford mix.  She has also worked with shelter animals, which is what drew her to Adopt & Shop’s mission of rescuing shelter dogs and cats. Lisa was a long-time volunteer with Westside German Shepherd Rescue, where she groomed adoptable dogs to keep them looking their best. When a former shelter pet she grooms gets adopted, Lisa takes pride in knowing she had a small part in saving its life. Lisa always wanted a career where her passion and dedication to animal welfare could benefit others, and she has found that role at Adopt & Shop.

During Lisa’s thirty-year career, she has worked with several privately owned grooming salons and also as a personal grooming technician to many of the top show dogs in the country. One of Lisa’s specialties is scissor work, which is rare to find in today’s groomers.  Lisa’s clients describe her as “dependable, professional, and talented.”

Charlie – Before & After

Lisa is a graduate of The Nash Academy of Animal Arts in New Jersey.  She studied under Loretta Voight, who was then named “Top Groomer” in the country (and later the world). Lisa maintained high standards during her training and was the only one to receive an “A” in Mrs. Voight’s course. Lisa’s training at the Academy included not only traditional AKC Breed standard cuts,  but also covered animal behavior, health, and biology.  Lisa was taught that a client will likely see their groomer more often than their vet, so she was also trained to spot possible health issues in order to alert owners.

Have a furry friend who could use a spa day?   Lisa would love to meet you and can’t wait to pamper your pet, so stop by Adopt & Shop Culver City today!
