Salon Owner & Groomer


Melannie started her career in animal care when she graduated from St. Lawrence College in Kingston, with an honors diploma as a Veterinary Assistant, along with a Grooming Certificate.

She then worked at Ottawa Veterinary Hospital in the emergency department developing her skills in emergency medicine. She returned home to Cornwall,  at St. Lawrence Valley Animal Hospital where she was trained to work as a Veterinary Technician.

She decided to take her love for animal care a step further and enrolled into the University of Guelph for the DVM program. While conducting her studies she decided to leave the medical aspect of animal care, and enter the beautician side. 

Her vast background in the medical aspect of animal care, combined with her passion for the well being of animals has benefited the pets in her care, as well as the owners who enjoy the comforts of her salon.

Melannie avidly participates in continuing education within the grooming industry with seminars and workshops. Her goal is to become a Certified Master Groomer with Canadian Professional Pet Stylists. She sat on the Board of Directors for Ontario Dog Groomers Association, and instilled mandatory continuing education into ODGA's membership. She will continue to strive to make a difference in the lives of the animals she touches.

She temporairly put her carreer on hold to start a family. After welcoming Kennedy, now 4,  and Maxwell, now 2, she joined the Central Bark family. She found her niche in dog grooming and is our natural coat expert.

Our beloved senior dogs are entrusted to her loving and caring touch. Demonstrating extreme patience and understanding, she groom's them working at their pace and comfort level. They always respond to her touch.




Sarah may have started her carrer in a different avenue, but her ture calling lies with her childhood dream of working with animals. Her attention to detail coupled with her love and compassion of animals, makes her an asset to our team. When the buzz of the dryers subside, she can be found snuggling a ShihTzu and wearing a huge smile upon her face.
