Boarding Manager / Part owner / Tech Specialist
Justin is our Team leader in regards to boarding arrangements. He specializes in logistics of arranging boarders in the correct suites and check in/out dates for each client. He also runs and maintains our booking software (ok pretty much all things technology here he runs!) And allows you guys the ability to do online booking and invoices.
He is well trained as a grooming assistant and can do most grooming packages that we offer here as well. He does his grooming to an expert level and we are encouraging him to also pursue his CFMG through the National Cat Groomers Institute.
He also actively fosters cats in his home but has taken a hiatus for a while. Ironically, he's allergic to cats, but still maintains his affectionate disposition towards them! He is well versed in information on how cat grooming aids people allergies!
