Gia has always enjoyed working and creating with her hands. She’s very proud to be able to use her skills to improve the lives of pet owners’ beloved companions! Gia has served as a Pet Groomer here at the Animal Hospital of Sandy Springs since 2007.
Gia grew up on a farm in Brazil, where she was surrounded by cows, pigs, horses, chickens, and goats from an early age. She moved to Miami with her husband, and they both started working at Gia’s brother-in-law’s veterinary hospital in 2003. Gia’s sister-in-law, who studied grooming at the Manhattan School of Dog Grooming, taught Gia the art of pet styling; she’s been sprucing up pets ever since!
At home, Gia and her husband—who also works in the animal-care field as a Veterinary Technician—live with their young daughter, a Labrador/shepherd mix named Prince, Fuzzy the pug, and a cat named George.
