Kristi Parrish
Hello my name is Kristi Parrish. I grew up in Columbus my whole life. I have one amazing daughter and two boys: Duncan Wagner & Fred.

I am an Animal Behaviorist. I received my certification at Animal Behavior College I have been passionate my whole life about protecting animals and volunteered with our local shelter for several years. My passion for doggies is a gift from God. God put a dream in my heart to own my own business and to work with the animals.

I'm living my dream today! Praise God! I'm excited about our growth. I didn't do it alone it took team work and dedication from each off our team members. Thanks to my fabulous team for making Dramatic Paws Pet Spa & Boutique a fun, safe and stress free environment for all the doggies and their parents.
Sarah Hussey

My name is Sarah Hussey, I was born in Louisiana. However I did grow up in Georgia most of my life. That is where I met my husband and have been married for 4 years.

My husband is in the Army. We have a beautiful baby daughter together. She will be one year old right before Christmas. When I'm not working, I'm playing with our four dogs, or riding our horses with friends. I've only lived in Columbus for a couple years, but most people will recognize me from my winged tattoo. It is definitely a conversation starter.

I am definitely family oriented person but grooming is by far my passion. I have been grooming for around 20 years. I could not see myself doing anything else. I am an animal lover!
Gabi Stokes
My name is Gabriele Stokes and I am from Ulm, Germany.   I am the proud mother of two young men, Ron and Dewayne and Cysco a German Shepherd.

I became a professional dog stylist in 2000. Prior to that, I was kennel manager at Animal Health Center for four years. Doing the shave downs for the clinic, I discovered my love for grooming. I apprenticed at a grooming shop and since 2009 I have been employed at Dramatic Paws.

I've been fortunate to have built good relationships with many clients and their dogs. Since 2008 I also groom the dogs for Paws humane, it is very rewarding to me to help them find their forever homes.
Jaime Bessey

Hello! My name is Jaime Bessey. I've been married for 10 years to my wonderful husband who is about to retire from the army. We love animals and have 2 boys who also love animals as much as we do. We have lived in Columbus, Ga for a year now and plan on retiring here.

I've been grooming for 3.5 years and love it! I was in the medical field for 16 years prior to grooming but really wanted to work with animals in a positive way!

I started working at Dramatic Paws and I couldn't be happier, true upscale spa for the four legged babies! Call 706*494*2900 and schedule a Spa Day for your fur baby or checkout our website
Duncan Wagner - mascot

I am a Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier with a lot of energy. I am very athletic for my age (8) and enjoy watching sports and romantic comedies. I am the mascot for Dramatic Paws. I hope you've seen me on the billboard. Next time you see me at the park just ask - I love to give pawtagraphs.
One good thing about being the mascot is I get super pampered on my Spa Days!
