I earned my degree in 1987. After that, I started working with my mom in the dog grooming parlour "The Dog House". Later on, I took over the business.

In 2000 I have opened a new dog grooming parlour in Ellecom, until 2013 I have had two parlours.

During the beginning of 1994 until the end of 2007 I have competed in several different competitions in several different countries. At this moment, I am travelling across the world as a jury member.
