Reu Reu was the most spectacular, beautiful, regal, majestic and yet, goofy and fun dog I ever had to pleasure of sharing my life with. He drew crowds wherever he went. Whether he was body surfing at the beach or chasing balls, he enjoyed life to the fullest and never met a stranger. I bet you have similar stories of your pets. Without a doubt Reu was my true soulmate and I will forever be grateful for the time I had with him. He is the very one that started it all. RIP Reuben Bernard 2/28/2005-2/16/2015.
I have over 35 years experience grooming. It all began while working at a poodle salon as a bather during college. Even though that experience didn't lead me down an immediate path to a career in grooming; I never stopped. Grooming for various rescues has remained a passion while still working as an Occupational Safety and Health Specialist. I have a BS in Occupational Safety and Health, AAS in Emergency Management and I'm currently working on a MBA. Helping pet business owners by providing OSH and EM consultations is one of the values I offer our community. I hold the highly esteemed A.K.C. Safe Groomer Certification, PetTech Pet CPR with First Aid and many other grooming related certifications.
I have over 30 years of executive management experience in mechanical engineering. After years of traveling the world for business, my passion and love for animals brought me home. I now handle the day to day business affairs of Reu's Corner, LLC.

Are you aware that compassion can help heal us from the inside out, especially so with compassion for animals. Research has shown that compassion reduces inflammation within our bodies on a cellular level; animals can heal matters of the heart as well. Compassion and kindness not only feels good, it inspires us to be more, to be better people, to be a better world. It is the vision of Reu's Corner, LLC to live in a world full of kindness and compassion.
