Christina has always had a love for animals and knew she wanted a career that involved working with them. She started at a doggy daycare in 2015. Then, Christina started taking care of your best friends at Four Muddy Paws for the first time in 2018 as a bather. 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.
Christina was born in Wiesbaden Germany as an Air Force dependent. She enjoys exploring and finding new cultural experiences, especially in St. Louis. Email Christina
