Hello, I'm Charlotte Corris, owner and groomer at Rags to Riches Pet Salon.
I opened in September 1998 as a brick and mortar salon and after 23 years and relocating back to St. Augustine Florida 32092, I decided to take it on the road!
After receiving my certification in 1986 (that's 35 years of experience!) from Connecticut K-9 Education Center in Newington Ct.,
I was hired by a well known Standard Poodle breeder, show handler and award winning groomer with whom I worked side by side for 5 1/2 years.
As a small business owner, I needed to stand out. When seeing how "dirty" the dog grooming industry could be, I decided that Rags to Riches would be better using high quality products, offering excellent customer service and creating relationships that are more like family. My goal is to work WITH my clients, giving options as well as ideas to try and hopefully, in the end, solve problems and issues that others have previously disregarded.
I specialize in breed specific trims, mixed breed trims, as well as new and upcoming styles on small to medium size dogs (under 50 lbs.) and cat grooming.
I am a member of the NDGA and I attend yearly seminars and trade shows.
Outside of the grooming studio, I love spending time with my family, friends and my standard poodle Frieda. I also enjoy the outdoors, being by the ocean, fishing, boating and gardening.
