Professional Grooming Team
Becoming a professional groomer was a natural outgrowth of my lifelong passion for dogs. I enjoy working with all breeds, and am especially skilled at grooming poodles and double coated dogs. I’ve been grooming professionally since 2006 and have recently started competing in grooming competitions. I always welcome the chance to learn about uncommon breeds or special grooms. I believe that being a good groomer means always learning and always taking special care with every pet.
I am extremely excited to be working with the talented La De Paws team! I am passionate about dog grooming and I love expanding my knowledge. I am committed to the comfort and safety of your pets, I believe they should always look and feel their best. I grew up in Southern Utah and have had animals most of my life. I have a small terrier mix named Willow and she is my motivation. I have been grooming for 3 years and love all breeds! I look forward to meeting you and your furry loved ones.
Certified Groomer & Salon Manager
Hi, my name is Crystal O’Connor. I am native to southern Utah. I have an extreme love for dogs and cats. I have spent most of my youth attending dog shows, delivering and raising puppies, and assisting my mother with group and private dog training classes. I know that the companionship shared with a dog is genuine. I absolutely love grooming, it is an everyday joy. I’m looking forward to meeting you and your best friend!
Professional Certified Groomer
I started working at a nice little shop in Montrose, California while I was in High School. After graduating I moved to Salt Lake City where I took a two year break from grooming to see if I could find another job as rewarding as dog grooming. That task proved to be impossible for a dog lover such as myself. I now am living outside of St. George and working for the most impressive grooming salon in this wonderful town, La de’ Paws. The staff here is very friendly and caring of the pets in our care. Our knowledge is continuously growing as we work together keeping up with the most up-to-date styles and techniques!
Front Office & Administration
Hello, I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be working with the team at La de’ Paws. I have been in Corporate America for over 16 years in Human Resources and decided it was time to work in the area of my passion, animals! I have had the opportunity to come into an already successful business with an established team, credibility and brand recognition. I look forward to meeting all of you and to provide the great experience that you and your pets have come to know and appreciate.
