Groomer

Noelle absolutely loves grooming, and it shows! She’s especially skilled at coat conditioning, classic cuts, hand scissoring, “neaten-up” trims, and gentle brushing and dematting.

Matted fur can be a serious medical issue, and helping matted pets get back to rights is incredibly rewarding. Noelle’s favorite part of grooming is making pets feel better.

Born in Fort Lauderdale, Noelle grew up with three brothers and a tan-and-white long-haired cat named Tigger. Her family moved to Butner when she was 8 years old. Today she still lives there with her husband, two human children, two cats, Nac Nac and Charlie, and a ball python named Holmes.

To Ivan, the best thing about Eno are the excellent grooming amenities, which make for excellent spa days! Plus, our family atmosphere: a welcoming, loving attitude toward all pets, pet parents, and team members.
