Ann Martin is an award-winning, nationally certified master groomer, poodle breeder, and judge with a passion for animals that began in childhood. Raised in a family of dog and rabbit show enthusiasts, Ann began grooming at the tender age of 12, setting the foundation for a successful career in the pet grooming industry.

At just 20 years old, Ann became a nationally certified master groomer through the National Dog Groomers Association of America (NDGAA), a distinction that set her apart from others in the industry. She has since served as a Certifier for the NDGAA for 27 years, helping to train and certify the next generation of master groomers.

Ann’s competitive grooming career began in 1992 and quickly gained momentum. She joined Groom Team USA in 1993 and 1995, and won BIS at the World Competition in 1995. Her success continued with a win at the Oster World Invitational in 1998, and numerous Best in Show and Best All-Around awards, as well as Cardinal American Groomer of the Year.

Alongside her grooming career, Ann has bred and shown standard poodles for 25 years, resulting in many champion animals. Her love for animals extends to a variety of species, including sheep, pigs, and rabbits, which she has raised and shown to high placements and championships. Ann even served as a 4-H Swine leader for 7 years.

Beyond her animal-related pursuits, Ann is a mother of 6 boys, a Reiki Master Teacher, and an author and partner of the Mastery Grooming Series with Irina Pinkusevich. She also enjoys cooking and baking in her free time. With her impressive resume and dedication to animal welfare, Ann Martin is a true inspiration to pet grooming professionals everywhere.
