Every morning the PUCCI students would gather and as a team and put their "paws" together in a huddle yelling "PUCCI Power" ... this was the beginning of the magic.
Mindy, one of PUCCI's first graduates, stayed at PUCCI as a professional stylist after graduation. She became a staple to the PUCCI family friendly environment. It wasn't long before she had a client request list and new students were turning to her for advice.
Having regular meetings with her instructors and working side by side with her mentors gave Mindy self confidence and the ability to redefine her life. As a professional stylist, she was able to fine-tune her grooming skills and truly accomplish what she aspired to do in her career.
Finding that PUCCI had more to offer beyond a grooming career, Mindy truly realized the PUCCI vision; to provide inspirational Instruction for the life of your career.
Mindy went on to student teach at PUCCI, thus furthering her education and honing her skills as a stylist and mentor. As she flourished in her career she set her heart on the goal of becoming an entrepreneur.
One thing Mindy was always good at was marketing displays. Mindy was on the planning committee for the PUCCI Anoka halloween parade creative grooming float for three years. She played a key roll in organizing the float & creative design team; taking 3rd place in its first year and being named honorary parade Float in the following year!
Mindy became a successful business owner in the community by utilizing the PUCCI vision "More Than A Grooming School". PUCCI alumni have access to mentorship and consultation services oriented toward furthering pet industry careers. The continued support beyond education assures successful students & bright futures.
Today Mindy is owner of "Dirty Dog Spa" in Apple Valley Minnesota. She manages a wonderful staff and is always running new marketing campaigns and fundraising events. She has truly come to realize the PUCCI mission & although she is dually missed the PUCCI family understands that every caterpillar must spread their wings growing into a beautiful butterfly. Mindy is one of PUCCI's treasured butterflies... once a part of the PUCCI family always a part of the PUCCI family!
