Heather Hudson - Owner / Lead Certified Pet Stylist

Heather Hudson is an avid animal lover who followed her passion for art and animals by becoming a Certified Pet Groomer. She attended a high-end pet grooming school where she became certified in breed-specific grooming, including both hand-scissoring and hand-stripping techniques. After graduation, she went on to work as a Certified Pet Stylist both at an animal hospital and at a well-established grooming salon in Naperville, IL. Heather, having always had the dream to open her own pet salon, opened StylaPet Day Spa. She is a strong believer in the importance of creating a safe and comfortable environment for both pet and owner and the effect this has on the overall experience for the animal. By providing a home-like atmosphere, she works daily to bring a personalized feel to the whole grooming process. Heather shares her home with four furry children of her own. Layla Mackenzye, is a Boston Terrier whose love for running and games has her making friends on a regular basis. Declan Seamus, a Portuguese Water Dog, is often found sporting a breed standard lion clip that makes him look quite dashing. Kiera, a Miniature Poodle, loves spending time at the salon greeting her many friends and Gizzy, the Lakeland Terrier, spends his weekends traveling with Heather to many different conformation and grooming shows and loves bringing home ribbons.
