🐾 Kelsey is our facility manager and Head Stylist.
She received her Pet Grooming Certification in 2020 here at CP and has absolutely out done herself! Throughout her two years she has shown a true talent and continues to hone her skills. She has an unmatched love for fur babies and is thrilled she chose this career path. CP is so proud to have this young lady a part of our family! She loves coaching, swimming, boating, anything that involves her two daughters, partner and Oakley (their Dotson).
Kelsey knew she had a passion for animals at a young age growing up with pups, cats and working with FFA. She previously was an assistant vet tech before her interest in becoming a pet groomer. Her favorite part of working with animals is being able to watch the fur babies transformations and being a part of the process. Kelsey embraces each experience with our clients, customizing to each fur baby. She love's sending home a freshly coiffed pet! The extra kisses are a bonus!
🐾 My name is Ashley and I am the proud business owner of Custom Paws Pet Resort & Spa.
I graduated from Oldham County High School in '09 and continued my education at Spalding University studying Business Management and Psychology.
I have had a passion and love for fur babies since I can remember. Growing up around horses, cattle, turtles, mice, dogs, cats... you name it! I have always wanted to work with animals and when I had the opportunity to fulfill this dream I decided it was time to rock it!
In 2017, I received my Professional Pet Groomers Certification. After just a few weeks in the grooming industry I knew this was my calling. Being able to work with animals was a dream come true. I have four pups, two are rescues and all of them are considered "aggressive breeds". Shortly after I started my career as a Pet Groomer, I realized that not all pups were able to receive the proper care they need and deserve based on breed, weight, age, aggression etc.
In 2019, I decided to step up and fill this necessity by providing a safe, loving and professional atmosphere for ALL paws. In Oct 2020, I reached the next tier, with over 10,000 hours of all breed experience.
March 2022 we expanded to our new location, providing additional Luxury Services, including Boarding and Day Stay!
My favorite part of working with animals is spending time with each individual fur baby while learning their unique personalities, and providing services that truly improves a pups attitude, energy, and over all well being. I am excited and thrilled to be apart of your family and to grow with you over the many years to come!
Welcome Chyna to the CP fam!
Chyna is originally from Louisville and lived in Atlanta since 2010. She recently moved back to Louisville to jump start her grooming career and join the Custom Paws family. Chynas hobbies include painting, going to the gym and practicing yoga techniques.
Her love for animals sparked her interest for the grooming field. Starting off she began walking and pet sitting for clients then slowly transitioned into grooming. In 2021, Chyna decided to take her aspirations further and graduated from Penn Foster Grooming School to receive her Pet Grooming diploma and certification. Since then, she's never been happier and more excited to be within the field she chose.
Chyna is so excited to see where her grooming training takes her and all the things she will accomplish. When she's not beautifying your fur babies she's at home with her own pup, aka her best friend, named Alexander, he is a Chinese Shar-pei and pit-bull mix. Alex is 1 year old and growing strong. He keeps her on her toes and teaches her patience and a different understanding of multiple personalities. :)
We are thrilled to have Chyna a part of our family 🐾 she has shown tremendous love and passion for the fur babies in our care! Give her a big ol congratulations next time you're in for a visit!
