“A Premier, Professional Grooming Service”
Tina Sivells – Grooming Manager
My name is Tina Sivells. As a child I always knew I would work with animals in some kind of way. Almost 11 years ago I started as a grooming assistant just helping handle the animals and giving baths. After a year I decided to go to grooming school; I graduated at the top of my class! My first groom dog was a miniature schnauzer and I knew from then on that this was what I was supposed to be doing. Grooming to me just isn’t a job; it’s a passion of mine. I love what I do and it brings a lot of happiness and joy to my life. I have two beautiful and amazing children- Mikayla is five and William is three. On our family days we like to go to the park,play baseball in the backyard, read books, and have picnics! One of my favorite hobbies is photography. I love taking pictures of my children and of the dogs I groom.
Elise Hayes – Pet Stylist
Hi, my name is Elise Hayes.I’ve loved animals ever since I was little, so it’s no surprise I ended up working with them. I got my start at Pet Smart in 2011, working as a bather before going through the grooming academy offered by that company.While working there,I learned my craft and gained valuable hands-on experience working with many different breeds of dogs. I enjoy my job and have a passion for making dogs look great! I have three fur babies of my own: a Siberian Husky and two cats.
Mallory Fields – Pet Stylist
Hi, my name is Mallory and for as long as I could remember, I’ve loved animals! It’s something about the bond with a pet that I cherish. They give you unconditional love that you can’t find anywhere else. I have one adorable fur baby named Shekinah Glory. She’s been apart of my family for over 15 years. I love her like a sister! I’ve been grooming for 7 years, and I love every moment of it! I started my grooming career at Pet Smart. I was trained through their grooming academy by the best groomer that I know! And I haven’t looked back since. I decided to leave that company because it would pain me to see the dogs kenneled and miserable. So when I found Aussie Pet Mobile, I fell in love. The dogs feel way more secure and safe in the van rather than in a kennel.
Brycie Sullivan – Pet Stylist
My name is Brycie Sullivan. I’ve been a groomer for almost 11 years. I grew up around animals and knew I would one day work with them. I got my first job as a dog bather when I was in high school and I’ve been doing it ever since. I love and take pride in what I do. I have two dogs and two cats of my own at home. I brought the whole pack with me when I moved here from California! I hope to meet all your pups and kitties soon!
Katie Fleming – Pet Stylist
My name is Katie, I have been grooming for about 6 years now and I have to say I wouldn’t trade my job for anything in the world. I started working in a kennel at a vet’s office in Alabama at the age of 17. I knew right then that I belonged in the animal world. Shortly after I started hands on training with a groomer who had 18 years of experience in the profession. Grooming quickly became my passion. Nothing is more rewarding then to see a happy, healthy fur baby and an even happier owner. It is my personal goal to make every pet as happy, comfortable, and beautiful as possible. I believe in giving each and every pet the same love and attention that I give to my four wonderful fur babies.
Briana Brakhage – Pet Stylist
My name is Briana, and Tina trained me here with Aussie Pet Mobile in 2015. That is when I discovered that I love helping animals feel better through grooming. I grew up in the West Tennessee countryside, caring for all kinds of animals, from dogs and cats to donkeys and emus. Today, I have two little dogs, Rukh and Tulsi, whom I adopted from shelters when I lived in New Mexico. I am a sucker for the oddball rescue pet and mutt! For me, grooming is about really understanding the needs of you and your pets. I am excited to get to know your pets and make them look and feel better!
Nichole Campbell – Pet Stylist
My name is Nichole, and I started working for Aussie Pet Mobile in 2016. I did my training with Tina, the best groomer and trainer I know. I am a cheese head, yup you guessed it, I’m from Wisconsin. I have always loved and cared for animals since I can remember and knew I would work with animals all my life. I have two amazing, goofy, and handsome little boys and a wonderful husband. Of course I also have my sweet fur baby Jez; she is one of the best companions I could ask for, and I couldn’t imagine my life without her. Family time is very important to me as it keeps me grounded and reminds me of how precious life is and how thankful I am. I look forward to growing a special bond with all of my clients and their amazing fur babies.
Brittney Dowell – Pet Stylist
Hi, my name is Brittney Dowell and I’ve always had a life long love for animals. When I was a kid, I would bring home every stray dog I could find. Of course, it was no surprise when I decided to pursue a career as a professional dog groomer. After working as a bather for a little over a year, I was offered a chance to attend the PetSmart Grooming Academy. I’ve currently been grooming for over 2 years, and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. I’m known for my amazing personality, creative styling techniques, and hair coloring for dogs.
Latoya Peete – Pet Stylist
Hi, my name is Latoya Peete. I’ve always loved animals ever since I was a child. Six years ago I started as a bather at PetSmart. After seven months I went to PetSmart Grooming Academy and have been grooming ever since. I absolutely love my job! I have two little fur babies myself named Tyler and Elena, whom I love so much. I look forward to growing a bond with your babies and making them look and feel great.
Meaghan Lyons – Pet Stylist
Hey my name is Meaghan Lyons. I was born and raised in Memphis. I made the move to Aussie Pet Mobile grooming after working for Petco grooming for two years. I went to school for Architecture/Interior Design and while I was in school I started grooming school. Soon after, I realised that grooming was what I wanted to do with my life and I love everyday of it. I have a wonderful fiance and we will be getting married in May 2018.

Leslie Uselton – Pet Stylist
Hi my name is Leslie. I’m 25 years old and I’ve lived in Memphis my whole life. I’ve always loved animals and knew one day I would work with them. Tina taught and trained me how to make beautiful fur babies even more beautiful. Additionally, I have a wonderful 4 year old little girl named Lilly who shares a love for animals as I do. I joined the Aussie family in 2017 and haven’t looked back since. I can’t wait to see you and your beautiful fur babies!!
Ericka Thomas – Pet Stylist
Hello everyone, I’m Ericka Thomas. I’ve been working in the animal field for quite a long time. I started my grooming career by learning how to groom my rescue pets then went to grooming as an independent contractor in the Southwind area. I have been grooming for almost 15 years. When I’m not grooming, I’m a loving wife and mother of four. Two have left the nest and two that are still home. And to keep things exciting we have a busy standard poodle. I look forward to helping to make your fur babies clean and cute!
Casie Roberts – Pet Stylist
Hi, my name is Casie Roberts and I’m from southern New Jersey. I grew up on the family farm riding horses and making friends with any animal that I could find! I graduated from Nash Academy (Grooming) in Lexington, KY in January 2016 and have been grooming ever since. My favorite part about grooming is seeing the dogs transfrom during the grooming process and seeing the owners reaction when they see their furbaby after their spa treatment!! When I’m not grooming I enjoy horseback riding, sewing, and most of all spending time with my husband Jacob, our dogs Dixie and Lovey, and our cats Natasha and Vader.
