As far as career changes go, Sam Clark’s takes some beating.
Sam has just set herself up in the dog grooming business with her new business Diva Dogs Grooming having previously worked for Nationwide Building Society in Grantham High Street.
Sam, who works out of Posh Paws in Welby Street, said: “Due to ill health I was unable to go back so I’ve decided to start a new career and reinvent myself.”
Sam has always had a passion for animals. She has four dogs of her own and is a foster parent for dogs in need of homes.
After leaving nationwide she studied dog grooming at Grantham College, achieving a distinction in her City and Guild before starting off her own business.
She said: “Some people see it as pampering but my main aim is to make sure the dogs are not stressed and are safe.”
Sam is grateful Jackie Ridealgh of Posh Paws for all her help and for giving her the chance to work out of her business.
Sam said: “She has helped me so much. If it was not for her I wouldn’t be doing this.”
