    I have worked in the healthcare industry for 30 years. Since I trained at the NCGIA and started my own feline-exclusive cat grooming business, I can’t imagine doing anything else. It pays so much better and, most importantly for me, is the feeling I get when I help a cat with an issue their owner thought was insurmountable. I feel very appreciated by owner and cat in this profession. Becoming a Certified Feline Master Groomer has opened a door for me that I never imagined going through and I have such a positive feeling about the path to my future…thank you NCGIA

    I was a business economist, was working as head of finance and administration till meeting Danelle German, founder of the NCGIA, while she was in Zurich teaching a class. I turned my stressful life upside-down, and I became CFMG satisfied with my life as cat groomer more then ever.

    The NCGIA transformed my life, perhaps it sounds like too outrageous a statement but it's true! Becoming a CFMG was the best thing I ever did. I was a hairstylist and was getting bored and this provided the challenge I needed. Also what was supposed to just be a once a month cat grooming day exploded immediately into a full fledged multi day business with no end of cat clientèle in sight. Not to mention the money is better then hairstyling and dog grooming. Plus that awesome feeling of helping a cat out, getting them clean to the highest standards, and seeing the smile on the clients face when they pick up; well that's the best part of being a CFMG and it couldn't have been achieved without the NCGIA.

  • A.E. Tennessee

    A 13 yr dog groomer who occasionally bathed a cat! With over 30 groom shops in the area I needed to find a special niche besides simply using a holistic approach with pets. I have gained confidence, respect, and with a great business 101 training while working with cats at NCGIA while achieving my CGMG. I am proud to be first CFMG in Middle TN!

    To say my decision to jump on a plane with 2 weeks notice and fly across to the other side of the world was a good investment is an understatement.
    I was previously a dog exclusive groomer who wanted knowledge and skill before touching cats. Now, 6 years later I have sold my dog grooming business, have Queensland’s first cat exclusive salon which is booked out 6-8 weeks in advance. More on Saturdays. I am now making more money with less work and have learned to value myself and my work. This would not have been possible without learning from Danelle and the NCGIA. Thank you.
