Katie has lived all over the states in Southern California, Colorado, Georgia, and now Seattle. As one of our longest standing employees, Katie has been an invaluable asset to DDL. She joined Downtown Dog Lounge in 2009 as a handler and has since transitioned into the roles of concierge, pack leader, staff trainer, manager, and now groomer. She’s known for taking on dogs who have struggled with other groomers in the past, whether they’re stressed, anxious, or squirmy. In her free time Katie and her husband can be found exploring the PNW on their Harley motorcycles, cooking, or caring for her immense number of houseplants. She also has 3 pups, all short haired so she doesn’t bring her work home with her.
