Afterwards, she moved back to her hometown of Kirksville, MO and started her transition from bathing to grooming. In 2021 she moved back to St. Louis and rejoined the Four Muddy Paws team as a pet stylist, apprenticing under Crystal Rolfe.
Christina enjoys spending time with her heart dogs, Gypsy-Rose(12 y/o Labrador mix) and Cupcake (8y/o Labrador mix). She loves taking them on walks/hikes.

Katie is originally from the area but moved to Florida for 3 years, where she found her passion as a pet stylist! She started as a bather and worked her way up to a groomer!
She knew she wanted to work with animals growing up so getting that opportunity to get into this field was the best decision she's made! Her little zoo includes an Australian cattle dog named Bindi, a Siamese cat named Squirtle, an orange kitty named Mango, and a calico kitty named Nala! Her animals are her whole world!
Katie works Sunday - Tuesday, is off on Wednesday, and works Thursday - Friday. Katie takes walk up nail trims from 11 am 3 pm on Sunday's at the Edwardsville shop.
