Our Team

Katrina Wickens

Owner/Dog Groomer

I have been a professional dog groomer for 9+ years. I have owned Ruff Cuts for over 7 years and have loved every second of it! I have been so lucky to be involved with such amazing well-educated professional groomers to help keep our furry clients and pet parents happy.

I am always learning new grooming skills so that I can be sure to offer all of my clients with updated professional dog grooming. I’m a very calm and trusting groomer that likes to build a connection with each pet to insure they feel happy and comfortable throughout their whole grooming experience. I’m always up for a challenge and love trying new things whether it is adding some colour to your pups or focusing on specific breed clips.

When I’m not at Ruff Cuts I am a busy mom of 4 and love spending time with our horse Decker. I have always had such a strong love for animals, which still continues to grow everyday. I will always greet you and your pets with a smile and positive attitude and be sure to make your dogs grooming experience a good one!

Paige Shumilak

Dog Groomer

From a young age I have always had a way and an understanding with animals. I worked with a few local Vets part time as a Veterinarian assistant through high school. Also being involved in the equine world, I furthered my knowledge of animals and their nutrition at the University of Guelph in Kemptville studying agriculture and equine studies.

After college I split my time between working with a competitive world class reining stable and a local pet grooming salon. My passion was with working with dogs and I became a professional dog groomer. I have been in the grooming industry learning and loving what I do for the past 9 years.

In my spare time I enjoy spending it in activities with my horse Remington and my two border collie x aussies, Daisy and Duke. We enjoy agility, herding, long nature walks as well as western horse events and trails. I am currently certified in pet first aid .

Jessica Price

Dog Groomer

I am very happy to be part of the Ruff Cuts team. My first experience with grooming was during high school in St.Catherines as a volunteer at a kennel. From that moment I knew that dogs and the need to rescue was part of my life.

Completing my training in 2014, I started my own company as a mobile groomer giving dogs a spa day at home. In 2019 I met my husband and returned to my birthplace, Lindsay. I finally felt at home and was so happy to restart my career at Ruff Cuts. My passion is making your dog feel pampered and loved start to finish. My specialty is large dogs, and will accept the challenge of dogs that tend to be difficult to work with. I work one on one with each client from start to finish.

My training continues, recently being certified in Canine CPR and Emergency First Aid. When I’m not at Ruff Cuts you will find me with my bulldog Stella or enjoying the breeze on our motorcycles!

LeeAnn Murphy

Dog Groomer

My name is LeeAnn. I am a very passionate and very loving dog groomer of 10+ years. When I’m not working I am at home with my family being a very proud mother. I fell in love with dogs as a child and immediately knew, as a teenager; I wanted to work with them in my adulthood. I have been trained in, and very much enjoy, working with dogs that can be difficult and/or challenging in any way.

I am patient, gentle, and considerate and I promise to help your dog feel as comfortable as possible and enjoy being apart of their growth and their success. It is very rewarding building relationships with dogs and their families along the way. I love being a dog groomer and couldn’t imagine doing anything else!
