My name is Thea Steele and I am the proud owner and groomer of Sassy Tailz Pet Grooming, LLC since 2015. I live in the Beaumont area with my husband and 5 year old daughter. My furry friends include my 1 year old Cattle Dog Sassy, who my clients know and love, my 3 year old blue tick mix Dozer, my 8 year old cat Smokey and 3 year old cat Gus.
I began grooming at the very young age of 13, shaving horses in professional hunter/jumper farms. While training in equestrian jumping I was taught how to care and groom these magificent animals from mane to tail. My Journey then ventured into Veterinary Medicine when I met one of the most iconic people in my life Dr. Meg Miller Turpin, DACVIM. She employed me as her assistant for 7 years where I learned the wonders of Equine Internal Medicine. During those years I also worked for the Equine Hyperbaric Center of South Florida in which I am fully certified to run a Oxygen chamber to heal and treat horses. I later ventured off to Tampa, Florida where I found myself at Surgi-care for Horses. At this facility I learned full hospitalization care, general anesthesia, and worked as a nurse in surgeries. My next job was in Virginia Beach at Small animal clinic where I was a full time assistant for 2 years. There I learned small animal anesthesia, microscopic techniques, anatomy, general diseases, medications, grooming, and dental procedures. In 2014 I decided that grooming was my true passion, and purchased my first grooming trailer. In 2016 I upgraded to my Mercedes Sprinter Grooming Van.
