Brenna Warner- PetStylist / Cat Stylist
Brenna came to Premium PetStyling in 2019 with a goal in mind... to become a Premium PetStylist!
Brenna joined our team as a PetStylist Assistant and completed our 2-year Internship Program to become a PetStylist. After an unfortunate medical surgery it delayed Brenna's education plans a bit and she was finally promoted in Fall 2021!
Brenna has continued to work toward advancing her grooming skills and challenges herself every day to reach new highs. Brenna specializes in Double Coat Breeds and All Breed: Traditional and Modern Styles. Brenna's soft and calm nature helps ease even the most nervous pets.
Brenna has become a great asset to our Premium Family and we see amazing things in store for her grooming future. Brenna's best quality is her loyalty to her clients and team. She will work overtime to achieve the results you are looking for. And if she doesn't know how to do something she will find a way to find out! We couldn't be happier to be a part of her grooming journey and we look forward to watching her grow!
When Brenna is not working in the salon, she is spending time with her long time boyfriend and her spoiled Boxer Roxie! Brenna loves attending dog shows and competing in dog sports with Roxie every chance she gets. Brenna is a fan of the mountains, camping adventures and doing 'old lady' activities like knitting, crossword puzzles and making perogies while drinking tea.
Samantha Williams- PetStylist
Samantha joined our team in Feb 2023 searching for guidance and mentorship after completing a local Grooming Academy in fall 2022.
In this short amount of time, Samantha has proven her determination and drive is paying off and her quality of work is well ahead of her experience. Although Samantha is still perfecting her skills and working towards her future within the industry we are seeing huge potential in this young lady!
Samantha originally attended cosmetology school for hairdressing, but her passion and love for pets herded her onto a different haircutting path. She still gets to use scissors everyday and her clients have 4 feet instead of 2... we think that's a win!
We are excited to see Samantha blossom as a PetStylist and look forward to seeing more of her creative nature shine through. We are happy she is part of our Premium Family!
When Samantha is not working in the salon, she enjoys spending quality time with her, work for home, boyfriend and her adopted Pitbull Whiskey- exploring the outdoors and living the good life! Samantha can also be found getting lost and escaping in a storybook or feeding her creative mind with a sewing project.
Jordan Byblow- PetStylist
Jordan shares a long history with our fearless leader.
Jordan began her grooming career with Tamara as her mentor 16+ years ago!
Cut from the same cloth, Tamara has always been a magnetic north for Jordan. No matter the circumstance she always finds her way back home.
After a bit of a hiatus to raise a family, Jordan has 2 young boys heading off to school and she is ready to dust off her clippers and take on clients!
Jordan specializes in All Breed: Modern and Traditional Styles, Double Coat Breeds and Hand Scissoring. Jordan has always excelled in customer satisfaction and her passion and drive for grooming is evident in her finished quality.
Jordan brings exceptional value to our team and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her back as part of our family. We look forward to seeing her get back in the swing of it all.
When Jordan is not working in the salon, this mom is raising her 2 beautiful boys and making the most out of life. She loves spending time outdoors and showing her kids all the sites this city has to offer.
She is also the biggest Disney junkie!
Lets just say, the Disney store closing is still a sore subject... but Disney will forever be in her heart!
*Jordan's schedule is limited at the moment but her availability will be more stable soon.
