Pawsome Grooms By Jessie
Your beloved pup is in great hands with Jessie Colon-Sanchez. With over 10 years of professional experience in grooming and pet care, Jessie is committed to delivering on the expectations of every pet parent of PupLuxe Grooming.
Prior to the launch of the PupLuxe Grooming van, Jessie has operated as a salon leader for three corporate grooming salons. In each salon, he coached his groomers on developing higher quality standards of grooming and ensured that all safety protocols and safe grooming techniques were adhered to, effectively reducing the number of incidents in the district. He also operated as the district academy trainer for Central Florida, developing high-performing and ambitious bathers into successful pet stylists.
After the pandemic changed the world we once knew, it was very clear that the pet grooming business would change as well. As more and more people now work from home, the need for at-home grooming services drastically increased, and what few mobile groomers were out there could barely keep up with the demand, let alone operate at the capacity of a full-service salon.
Introducing PupLuxe Grooming
As the demand for mobile grooming continued to increase, Jessie imagined a mobile grooming experience with no compromises. With his connections to high-end grooming product vendors and access to distributors from the grooming competition realm, he quickly realized the only thing standing in his way of creating the ultimate high-end mobile grooming experience was the vehicle itself.
With the help of his husband and graphic designer, Johan Colon-Sanchez, they were able to finance the perfect van, customize it inside and out, craft our digital presence and put all the systems and processes in place to establish this business on wheels.
And just like that, on May 17, 2022, Jessie crafted what would become the premier grooming experience for Orlando, Winter Garden, Windermere and surrounding communities. And now, the only thing we are missing the secret sauce that makes PupLuxe Grooming so special...
...You & Your Pup!
Tia joined our team on October 17, 2022, just 5 months after the launch of PupLuxe Grooming.
Tia's relationship with us began before we launched our business. Jessie was her Grooming Academy Teacher when they both worked for the same company. He continued to mentor her and develop her skills as a professional groomer while working at one of the busiest salons in the Central Florida region.
Prior to joining the PupLuxe Team, Tia grew into the role of a Salon Leader, where she continued to inspire other groomers in furthering their grooming skills, and practice safer and more efficient grooming techniques. She was also instrumental in making her salon more profitable and a more enjoyable place to be for her groomers and the clients they served.
We are so excited to have such an accomplished leader join our team and help us make a positive impact in the lives of our clients and their fur babies.
Justin joined our team on May 17, 2023, exactly 1 year after the launch of our first mobile grooming van.
Justin was also a student of Jessie while doing his grooming academy training with fellow PupLuxe Grooming stylist, Tia. Since then, he has continued to develop his skills as a pet groomer and salon leader.
He aspires to bring his love of color and art into the work he does here at PupLuxe. We are so excited to give Justin the resources he needs to hone his skills as a creative groomer and offer these colorful services to delight our clients and their pups.
When he's not helping pups achieve the healthy skin and coat of their dreams, Justin enjoys spending time with his husband, 2 adorable pups and 2 sweet kitties. He is also an avid fan of music festivals, podcasting and traveling with his hubby.
Our Support Staff
Our support staff is the backbone of our business. While they are typically not out on the road with the groomers, the work they do ensures that the wheels on our vans go 'round and 'round. Learn about the people who work behind-the-scenes at PupLuxe Grooming!
If you follow us on social media, sent us an email, or texted us through the app, then chances are you've interacted with Johan!
Even though he is rarely in the van, Johan plays an integral role in the success of PupLuxe Grooming. He created and manages this website, maintains and improves our social presence online, ensures all of our systems and processes are running smoothly, and facilitates all the backend administrative responsibilities of the business.
Johan has over 10 years of experience working as a graphic designer in the marketing and advertising field. His experience has helped catapult PupLuxe Grooming from a startup with no clientele, to the busy salon on wheels that everyone is raving about.
He primarily manages his duties from home in the company of his and Jessie's 2 pups, a golden doodle named Doodles, and a Bichon Frise named Odette.
Ivie is a staple in all things PupLuxe Grooming. She is often the first person our clients meet when they first learn about us and the one that they continue to work with for their pets' future appointments.
Ivie began her journey into pet care as a dog bather before transitioning into veterinary care. She's worked as a receptionist at vet care facilities before growing to become a Veterinary Technician at both a private vet facility and at an Emergency Veterinary Hospital. Her experience and expertise in customer care and pet medicine has made her an invaluable member of our team, often being the go-to source for insight on safer grooming practices, workplace sanitation and addressing any pet health concerns.
In her free time, Ivie enjoys spending time with her pup Druella and her boyfriend. She's a big fan of audiobooks and loves to take Druella with her to the drive-in theater.
