Jade Joy

Austin-based professional dog groomer extraordinaire

I am a Nationally Certified Master Groomer though NDGAA, AKC Safety Certified Stylist and owner of Austin Pet Stylist, and have made Austin home for the last 16 years. I moved here in 2001 to attend UT Austin, and graduated with a BSN in Nursing in 2006. After working in trauma and women’s health for a few years, I realized it was time to pursue my passion for animals. A career in dog grooming was a perfect way for me to combine my love for dogs and my artistic side, and it has proven to be a dream come true.
I have a senior Pomeranian named Gizmo, who think he’s a human and dislikes being around most other dogs. He’s my world, and I understand the close connections people have with their pets. All pets in my care are treated as if they were my own, and I understand how important that is to you.
I previously volunteered at Austin Pets Alive! and The Humane Society as a dog walker, and currently offer pro bono grooming services to Blue Dog Rescue and the Meals on Wheels PALS Program whenever they have a dog that needs a little TLC.
I believe there is always more to learn when it comes to grooming. I am constantly looking for more knowledge, and have attended countless trade shows, seminars, dog shows, and classes. I am currently certified in Pet 1st Aid and CPR and a Certified Terrier Groomer through the NDGAA. I am working towards my Master Groomer Certification and hope that have that completed soon.
I love grooming to breed standard, and smaller dogs are my specialty. Some of my favorite breeds to groom are Pomeranians, Yorkies, Poodles, Wire Fox Terriers, Australian Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, or creative or personality trims on mixed-breed dogs.
I love to be physically active, and when I'm not grooming you can find me working out at HEAT Bootcamp, running around South Austin, or training for my next obstacle course race.

Meet The Team

Edith Coffey

Award Winning National Certified Master Groomer

Edith is an award-winning competitive groomer and has gotten multiple 1st place awards for her talented poodle and English cocker grooms, Best in Texas, and most recently Best in Show.
I'm a professional pet stylist of 9 years, and I can't think of a better career for me!
I have loved dogs since I was a baby; my first word was "Teddy" my Scottish Terrier's name. I read every book on dogs I could find when I was young, spent countless hours teaching Patsy the family dog tricks and brushing her, and was obsessed with trying to get my parents to let me have my own puppy.
I became a groomer at 18 after attending Petsmart Grooming Academy. Since then, I have attended many seminars and hands-on workshops, earned my First Aid and CPR certification, and competed in grooming competitions where I earned several first place wins. In 2018 I earned my my National Certified Master Groomer title through the National Dog Groomer's Association of America.
I have experience in many breeds, my favorite being the poodle, any size. I even have my own poodle-kids, a Miniature poodle, Trevvor, and a Toy Poodle, Raven. I specialize in scissor trims, but also have experience in handstripping terriers and spaniels.
I look forward to working with you and your furkid to find that perfect personalized style you've been looking for!

Yahvannel Lopez

Pet Tech CPR and First Aid Certified Stylist

I was born in west side Cleveland, Ohio and lived in Waterbury, Connecticut for the majority of my childhood. I then returned to Ohio and spent my high school years there. After high school I moved to Austin and I have been living here for about 3 years.
During my Junior and Senior years of high school I attended a career center where I learned and practiced the arts of grooming for dogs, cats, and even horses. I also received training for Pet Tech CPR and First AID. While going through my training I participated in an Ohio state career development competition for grooming through the FFA Organization. I secured a 5th place in the state of Ohio. At the end of my training I received a certificate of completion.
As being a member of the FFA Organization I also attended a public Speaking Competition and Secured 1st place in reciting the FFA Creed. I enjoy learning more about grooming and continuously watch professional grooming videos. I have great patience for all dogs and strive to give all pets the best care they deserve. I am always wanting to know more about the grooming industry and am looking forward to earning my National Certified Master Groomer title.
I have always had a passion for the care of all kinds of animals and even have some of my own. I have a 12 year old miniature pinscher named Línda, who thinks she’s a Doberman. I have a caramel colored hedgehog named Rowan and he loves to roam outside. Last but not least I have an albino rat named Suzette who is super sweet and doesn’t let her lack of sight keep her down. On my free time I enjoy expressing my creative side by drawing and painting. I am a self taught artist and I also like to play my violin from time to time.
Some of my favorite breeds to groom are poodles, schnauzers and other terriers, Australian shepherds, and spaniels.

Calais Morgan

Express style appointments and large-breed groomer

I'm originally from central rural Oklahoma, just outside of Guthrie. With maternal grandparents ranching outside of Burnet, Texas, I spent a lot of time in and around the Hill Country near Austin. In 2008, I moved to Texas permanently.
I was introduced to the grooming industry at a very early age. I was raised from a toddler in my mother’s grooming salon and later helped with the Bouvier des Flandres’ my mother bred and showed. I knew early on that I would be a pet stylist. I spent many years working at a veterinary hospital managing their kennels and doing basic grooming, and I landed a pet styling apprenticeship in Austin years later.
I completed my apprenticeship in January 2011, and have since continued to hone my skills and techniques. I prioritize Continuing Education to not only provide my clientele with the latest and most comprehensive styles, but also the safest and most comfortable groom sessions for my dogs. Having found a like-minded approach and philosophy to Jade and her crew, I joined the team at Austin Pet Stylist in February 2016.
I am a progressive stylist with an intuitive and individualized approach to grooming, and I groom each dog individually by appointment. This assures that each dog receives the dedicated time and attention they need and allows them to be able to go home directly after the appointment is complete, therefore providing the briefest, most intimate, and stress-free grooming session possible.
I am well versed in the various styling and grooming needs of many different breeds and hair types. I am always searching for new ways to improve and customize styles to the particular needs of dogs in Austin and am open to trying new ideas and styles.
Besides keeping the dogs of Austin fur-fancy, I enjoys camping, bicycling, hiking, rock hunting and collection, gardening, crafting, and costuming. I live in East Austin with a Woodland Squirrelling Terrier named Nettie Bo-Bettie Woofy McPupPup, and 3 cats: A Miniature Dilute Tortoiseshell named Tippi Elm, Dagney, a Standard Dilute Tortoiseshell, and Japo, the Orange Tabby.

Elizabeth Gibbs

Just call me “Gibbs”

I was born and raised in Houston Texas and recently made the move to the great city of Austin.
I became a dog groomer at the age of 20. Originally I imagined it as a fun job to help me pay my way through college, but I quickly realized it was the career I wanted to pursue a future with.
I attended a grooming competition 4 years ago and became hooked. I've since taken private lessons, class seminars, watched countless grooming videos and so on. After a few class wins, I was nominated for "up and coming groomer of the year" in 2018. I've since taught grooming seminars and also educational videos.
Last year I obtained my pet CPR certification and also began showing dogs. I currently show my English cocker in AKC and my Bichon frise.
When I'm not spending time with my own dogs, I love to travel and also go to sporting events. My favorite sports are basketball and baseball.
Over my 10 years experience in the grooming salons, I've learned to work with dogs and understand their needs. I strive to make the grooming experience as stress free for both the dog and myself. I believe that dogs react to your energy and I strive to stay calm and confident so they dogs know they are in good hands. I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Gizmo Marie Joy

My skills fall in the just-being-the-smallest-fluff category!

My name is Gizmo Marie Joy (yes, my middle name is Marie, get over it!) and I am obviously the most important person on this bio page. I prefer to believe other dogs don’t exist, but since my mom seems to like them so much I guess I have to work with it.
My favorite things are squirrels and walkies, and sometimes I like to cuddle with my people. I like to perch up high on the couch and lick my paws to clean my gloriously puffy face like a cat-dog!
If you catch me in my pocket bed please leave me alone, unless you are giving me a “treat-treat”. I just want to sleep. I’ll tell you when it’s cuddle time. Sometimes I can get quite demanding!
I may not love being groomed but my mom is sure good at it! Sometimes she makes my paws too puffy though, and I need to lick them to flatten them out and fix her work.
