Kimberly “Kimmie” was well known in the city of Martinsburg and the surrounding areas. She graduated from Martinsburg High School in 1988 and furthered her education at the Maryland School of Dog Grooming where she graduated in 1990. Her passion for animals is what lead her to open The Grooming Room and Pet Suites, where she groomed and boarded dogs for over 20 years! Kimmie had such a huge heart for people and their pets and wanted her business to be their home away from home! She loved traveling with her friends and family, from Wyoming to visit her father or cruising to Aruba with her mom. She especially enjoyed her girl’s trips with her daughter and friends.
