Kayla Martinez


My name is Kayla and I am a Dog Bather here at Pawsh and I am currently training to become a groomer! I have always had a passion for animals and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work here. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to work with animals and I absolutely love what I do!

My boyfriend and I have a 2-year-old Yellow lab and his name is Whiskey. He is the greatest fur baby, snuggle bug and sidekick. We like to go to the park and play fetch, go on evening walks and enjoy the outdoors as much as we can. Whiskey is my best friend and we couldn’t imagine life without him. He has brought us so much happiness and love.

I am proud to be a Pawshie and cannot wait to meet new fur babies along my journey as a part of this Pawsome team!

I’ve been an avid animal lover my whole life, often found as a child romping in the yard with my two beagles Houser and Cutter! At an early age I had a knack for animals and began walking neighbor’s dogs in elementary school for a dollar! Later when I was 21 I found myself working on ranches and handling all sorts of animals. This is where I first began grooming, washing horses and cleaning hooves! Later in 2003 I was first exposed to a grooming salon on a ranch, and washed dogs to work off my room and board.

My love for grooming developed and I found myself owning my own salon at the end of 2005. My artistic nature combined with the aesthetic nature of making animals beautiful blossomed in the following years. I also love the aspect that I’m helping animals and owners by identifying potential risks early on as well as helping owners with every day basics to increase the joy and longevity of living with animals. I have been to at least a dozen grooming seminars, classes and studies. I love learning about pet behavior, anatomy and grooming styles, as well as teaching grooming to new groomers. Today I’m grooming full time here at Pawsh Place and love to groom dogs and cats while working on continued education in the grooming industry!
