Joe has been handling pets professionally since 2012 when his service time ended with the United States Army. While in the Army, Joe assisted in the rehabilitation of stray dogs in the Afghanistan and acted as an advocate for their proper care and handling. Joe's grooming experience began as an assistant to Sherry, moving into an apprenticeship position and being able to successfully groom pets to her standards. As a husband and father, Joe continues to work on and improve himself as a person and finds that working with pets gives him a stable outlet for his compassion and an ability to care for those who cannot express themselves in words. "They talk to you in so many ways, you just have to learn to listen."
