Willowrun is proud to offer Professional Grooming

by Anne Haywood


Soon after she started working on her foster poodle with nothing but a pair of scissors Anne enrolled in Pet Smart's Grooming Academy, and was employed by the store for 2 years.  She left Pet Smart to join a private shop, but decided to cut back to part time employment to spend more time with her family, this led her to Willowrun!  Anne continues to seek out ways to improve her grooming skills by attending trade shows at events like Atlanta's Pet Fair. 

Anne is a married mother of three and a new grandmother.  She has four dogs and three grand-dogs.  Anne has been a groomer for the last 5 years.  She has always had a passion for helping animals, and through work with her own rescue dogs she developed a knack for grooming.

Missy Balmer, Dog Groomer

by Missy Balmer

Missy is originally from New York, but has lived down south for most of
her life. She began her grooming career in 1996 and has worked in
various settings, from veterinary hospitals to PetsMart and small
privately owned shops. Her favorite has always been the veterinary
hospitals because she feels that she is "part of a team" of people who
love and care for animals as much as she does

She has called Garner her home since 1999. She is married to husband Steve, and together they have 2 Chihuahuas, Peanut and Lilly, and they are owned by three cats: Mrs. Meow, Mittens and Mongoose. When they can, they enjoy weekends at the beach with their babies.
