Meet The Team

Your Local and Best Dog Groomers in the Hills District





Melissa –  Owner/Senior cat and dog stylist

Melissa established HG in 2012 and has grown the business from a small one-person salon to one of Sydney’s busiest pet grooming salons.

Many years of experience as a Veterinary Nurse (too many to mention here), Mel has a solid animal welfare and animal care background. She has worked at local Vet hospitals since leaving school and is now the proud owner of a thriving business and manager of a great team.

When not at work Mel manages her home life with her children and her own menagerie.

Charlotte – Salon Shift Manager/Dog Stylist

Ask Charlotte to name her hobbies and she will tell you “Anything dog related!” She has completed courses: Cert II Business 2018, Cert II Animal Studies (Veterinary Nursing strand) 2020 and Cert III Pet Grooming 2021.

Charlotte tried her hand in a number of different industries from supermarkets to merchandising to hospitality before embarking on her qualification training. During that time, she did placement at a local vet for Animal Studies, and then discovered her true passion of dog grooming after completing work placement at Hills Grooming. When work placement turned into a job offer, the rest was history.

When she’s not in the salon you will find Charlotte playing tennis, going to the dog beach and hanging out with her Cavoodle, Daisy.

Sheree – Senior dog stylist

Once you’ve been to Hills Grooming, you will know Sheree. She has worked for Hills Grooming since 2015 and is one of our most experienced team members. An ‘all-rounder’, with exceptional skills in breed specific clips, Sheree’s biggest areas of expertise are Poodles and Cocker Spaniels.

Sheree is passionate about animals, is a local resident and when not at work can be found researching and planning her next overseas trip.

Liz – Senior cat and dog stylist 

Liz started her career in 2013 as a dog waker and pet sitter, before studying to become a Veterinary nurse at a local veterinary hospital on the Northern Beaches. Liz had the opportunity to study pet grooming and went on to groom, dogs, cats, and the odd pocket pet.

Liz has a bright vibrant personality and will never pass up the opportunity to have a chat and talk about your dog.  She enjoys grooming all breeds with a special flare for small breeds such as Maltese, Shih-tzu and Cavalier. Her most requested clips are “wash and wear’ summer styles and winter clips.

Away from the salon she loves to cook, crochet and colour her hair green or purple!

Bel – Senior dog Stylist

Bel started grooming in 2011 and worked as a pet stylist before taking a break in 2015 to pursue a different line of work. Bel came back to grooming in 2022, after missing the creativity of the work and getting to cuddle puppies all day.

In her personal time, you can find Bel training in martial arts, and teaching her own Taekwondo classes.
