Meet the Owner / Groomer

Hope developed a love for animals early, having owned dogs, cats, guinea pigs and even a hedgehog.  She trained locally at the Academy of Animal Arts in Largo, completing both the professional pet grooming program as well as the advanced program.  After graduation, she worked at Woof Gang Bakery and Grooming in St. Petersburg for five years where she worked with all breeds and sizes of dogs.  She is very excited to take on this new adventure as both a groomer and the owner of Southpaw Spa as of November 2023.

Outside of the salon, Hope enjoys music, dancing, skateboarding and the beach.  Hope was a member of Largo High School's marching band all through high school and has played many instruments (saxophone, guitar, drums, and ukulele).

Hope looks forward to meeting you and your beloved pets and providing the best service possible to make your pets look and feel special.
