Elli Bultemeier

Pet Stylist

Elli has been with Smoochie Pooch since January of 2018 and has been grooming for about ten years. She has had dogs her entire life and currently has four dogs, two English Cockers (Tag & Marvel), a standard Poodle (Vincent), and a Shiba Inu (Kuma). When Elli is not grooming, she enjoys playing with her kids and traveling. She also has a passion for photography, owning her own photography business, which keeps her busy when not going to trade shows and competing in grooming competitions. She loves her job with Smoochie Pooch because of the big focus on continuing education and how extremely supportive the company is for the furthering of its groomer’s skills, education, and competitive goals.
