Groomer/Grooming Department Manager

Dakota is our full-time groomer at AAMC’s Pawlor!

From a very young age, she has had a huge heart for all animals. “Growing up on a farm, we always had a variety of pets. From day one I knew I wanted to work with animals.”

Dakota has over 11 years of grooming experience and has been at Abingdon Animal Medical Center for over 8 years. She has experience with show standard grooming, feline grooming, and creative grooming.

On days that she isn’t pampering pets, you can find her and her son, Clint Calvin, cheering on her husband at the local NASCAR tracks. If they aren’t at the race track (which isn’t often), they spend their time wading the river with their 4 senior dogs.

“Not very many people can say that they love their job, well I do!! I’m so lucky to truly enjoy coming into work every day and loving on all my wonderful clients! I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
