Emerald Hawks hails from Bowling Green, Kentucky. There, she was raised on a farm, with Emu’s, 3 Bouvier’s, a Rat Terrier and a Chow Chow. Her love for animals is evident in her calm, gentle handling of all pets. Emerald moved to Steamboat Springs in 2014.
Steamboat Dog Spa welcomed her in the summer of 2019, coming back to grooming full time after a short hiatus. Emerald’s background as a Professional Groomer with more than 6 years experience includes both corporate grooming salons (PetCo), independently owned salons and dog boarding/day care facilities.

Arts & Crafts are big at their house, as well as knitting, crochet, painting and building things too! Her creative artistry is mirrored in the world of pet styling, she’ll WOW you with her beautiful haircuts and festive bows. Emerald says “Thanks for sharing your fur children with me!”.
