The Grooming Team
Naomi Nasman (she/her)
Grooming has always been my happy place, and I’m so grateful to have these wonderful dogs in my life. I love being able to bond with your babies and help keep them healthy and happy!
In my free time I like to read, hike, write, and spend time with my family including my son and two kitties.
Alicia Risolio (she/her)
Alicia started grooming in 2017. She grew up with animals her whole life and as a kid, she wanted to be either a teacher or a dog groomer. Alicia trained to be a groomer through a professional academy - she loves the artistry of grooming and the highlight of her day is when owners are thrilled with how their pup looks after a spa day!

The Leadership Team
Sonya Droguett (she/her)
Sonya opened Pups with the vision that routine grooming, training and daycare should be as comfortable for pets and transparent as possible for the paw parents. She is proud of the community that Pups has created and does not take for granted that our customers entrust us with the care of their fur babies. She loves them like her own!
