Natalie West is a co-founder of igroomhub and a strong advocate for quality education within the grooming sector. Natalie’s career began 25 years ago when she embarked on a grooming course with Australia’s only Master Groomer at the time, Daphner Calendar. Following 3 years at Victorian Dog Grooming School, Nat set about developing her craft at various pet shops, salons and Veterinarian clinics, eventually opening her own salon, Doggy Dooz, in 2001.
Nat has enjoyed many years as an educator. In 2005 Nat’s second business, Dog Diversity Grooming School was launched. Many groomers have come through the doors at Dog Diversity and enjoy stellar careers as a result. From Nat herself, “Passion will only take you so far, education and training is the key to a successful grooming career."
