Faith Larson – Groomer
We welcome Faith Larson as our newest Groomer. Originally from West Bend, Faith joins us with almost 5 years’ experience as a professional groomer. Faith has the skills, creativity and ability to groom all breeds, but she is a little bit partial to grooming Doodle breeds because no two are exactly alike.
When not caring for dogs at work, Faith is kept busy with her own 4 cats and two dogs. The newest addition is baby Lilo, a Boston terrier. Faith describes her transition from her last job to The Feed Bag as, “It’s warming. It’s like going from Corporate to Family. I love it.”
Rachel Koepke – Bather
Rachel and her boyfriend Casey are pet parents to Nina, (Chihuahua/Terrier mix), Mia (Cat), and Lola & Zazu (Hedgehogs). In her spare time Rachel enjoys crocheting, going for walks, baking cookies and hanging out with friends.
Rachel is experienced with animals and is very excited to start a career in the grooming field. Rachel is looking forward to learning all aspects of bathing and grooming to pursue her lifelong passion to work with animals.
Kasey Cox – Bather
Hello my name is Kasey! As a young age, I have always been devoted to caring for all animals. I was born in Ventura, California and lived with my parents (John and Kelley), older brother (Kahler), and our cat, Mombo. Once we moved to Milwaukee, WI, our love for animals grew over time.
We had a yellow lab, 3 cats, 1 turtle, 2 hamsters and a lizard. I graduated from Oak Creek High School and now live in Brookfield, WI. with 2 German shepherds, Lego and Yazmin.
Currently I am pursuing my grooming career by first starting off as a Bather for The Feed Bag Grooming salon and I plan to become a successful Groomer here. When I am not at work I enjoy taking my dogs for walks, going to the gym and enjoy spending time with my family and friends! Please stop in the grooming salon here, and get to know me as well as all the amazing groomers here!
