Owner ~ Salon Manager ~ Melissa
Melissa Beard ~ She is the owner of Beautiful Beards Pet Spaw. She is a mother of twin 8 year olds and the wife of Steven Beard of 15+ years. She is also the momma of 5 fur babies, a chocolate golden doodle, a standard Poodle, a phantom golden doodle, a white golden doodle and a merle parti standard poodle. She loves, God, life, family, friends, animals and our Great, Beautiful city Lake Havasu.
Here is her story. After leaving Wells Fargo in early 2006 she found herself lost in what to do for a career and spent most days at home looking for jobs online. At the time, it was just her, her husband, Steven Beard, and their chocolate lab, Delilah, who passed away this past year at the age of 14, God bless her soul. Anyways, most days, she spent her time at home with her chocolate lab. This is what led her into dog grooming shops, pet stores and feed stores more often then not. One day, she had stepped into a grooming shop to inquire about a bath for Delilah. That is when she met Jeneh, the grooming shops owner. Jeneh was the most amazing, positive person she had ever met. Everything about her and her shop made Melissa want to work there. So she applied and started out as a bather. Eventually she moved to receptionist and then groomer in training. She was trained by Jeneh, the most incredible master groomer. This master groomer's attention to detail and her love for animals made her stand out more than anyone else in the grooming shop. After a few month of the apprenticeship Melissa was a fully trained Groomer. She worked at her shop until her and husband, Steven relocated due to his college education. Over the next 4 years Melissa followed Steven across 3 cities and 2 states while he finished his degree. During those years, she found herself in various grooming shops perfecting her skills. Then in 2011, Steven and Melissa decided to extend their family, from pets to adding a few children. They became expecting with twins. That is when Melissa decided to take a year off and focus on her pregnancy. After the kids were born, She groomed dogs out of their house until Steven's career landed them in Lake Havasu, a place they could finally settle down and call home.
Melissa and Steven spent most of 2017 and 2018 researching, planning, developing, prioritizing, and saving for her dream. All the things Melissa loved or disliked about every grooming shop she had stepped foot in over the years, had been considered. With a lot of hard work and dedication, in December of 2018, Beautiful Beards Pet Spaw opened for business. Melissa has committed to bringing the best products, care and services to our wonderful city of Lake Havasu. This is her story and the type of person you are leaving your fur baby in the hands of during their visit at Beautilful Beards Pet Spaw. The type of love, care, and skill that is necessary while they visit a grooming salon.
