Michelle Monek-Silber and Andrea Monek-Head
* * *
Michelle and Andrea grew up surrounded by pets. They had dogs, cats, hamsters and parrots to name a few. During their childhood years, they visited their father on his farm and became acquainted with horses and goats as well. They have always been true animal lovers.

Michelle and Andrea completed their dog grooming training program at Bishop Grooming Academy in Glencoe, IL. They studied under Jennifer Bishop Jenkins, a certified Master Groomer with years of experience and unparalleled talent. They continued working for Jennifer at Love Fur Dogs before deciding to open up their own dog grooming business in Highland Park, IL,
The Paw Parlour.

Prior to dog grooming, Michelle was first a science teacher and then worked in the quality control department for a medical supply company. Andrea used to work with disabled people in Denver, Colorado. She later became certified in Human Resources, and worked as a Benefits Director. Both Michelle and Andrea have always had a dream of working with and helping animals in some capacity. The Paw Parlour is their dream come true. Today, combined, they are proud parents of 5 children, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 3 guinea pigs, 2 fish and a frog named Frank.
