Jackie began her career at Blue Prints in 2003. After leaving a successful career with U.S. Air Force, Jackie began as a floor attendant in the daycare. Her passion and love of dogs included a desire to groom and in 2004 Jackie trained to become the top groomer at Blue Prints.
In 2011, Jackie and Jim realized the importance of a positive grooming experience and started their own grooming shop now known as The Pink Pug. Jackie oversees all grooming and, together with Jim, offers a unique and positive experience for dogs being groomed.
Jim and Jackie currently have two pugs, Baxter and Marley, and a redbone coonhound named Jax. Baxter serves as the face of The Pink Pug and was the inspiration behind the unique name of the business.
