Amy – Sales Associate
I started at LuLu & Luigi in March of 2014. Before deciding to be a stay at home mom after the birth of my daughter in 2013, I worked as a professional “desk jockey” for a small family owned company in Plymouth. After sort of getting the hang of the whole mommy thing, I decided it was a good time to go back to work part-time. And what better place to work than a pet boutique! Of course the best part of this job is the animals! But my fantastic coworkers and clients make it not even feel like work! When I’m not working, I’m at home playing with my daughter or finding fun places for us to go. I also like to try to cuddle our very un-cuddly dogs Duke our 6 year old Papillon and Roscoe our 10 year old retired police canine.
Cassandra – Pet Stylist
I’ve been grooming for 13 years and have developed a specialty in working with senior dogs or those that do not enjoy the grooming process. I am a firm believer in putting the comfort, needs and safety of pets in my care first. I am also passionate about continuing education and attend numerous grooming seminars every year to learn new handling skills and techniques. I have two dogs and two cats. When I am not grooming I enjoy fishing, frisbee golf, dancing and ’80’s rock music.
Jess – Pet Stylist
I have had a passion for animals my entire life. Grooming dogs for the past 20 years has been a very rewarding career. Building close relationships with clients and their dogs is my favorite part. I am a mother of two boys, Dawson age 7 and Declan age 3. And also an 8 year old french bulldog named Stella. I have been at Lulu & Luigi for the past 9 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. My clientele largely consists of Yorkies, Havanese, Maltese and Bichons. But I do have experience and enjoy grooming all breeds of dog. I am currently a member of the International Society of Canine Cosmetologists, and recently earned my Master Groomer Certification in 2017.
Brenna – Store Manager
I started at Lulu and Luigi in May of 2019. Prior to Lulu’s I was working as a paralegal for a nonprofit, which I still do part-time. I have always been dog obsessed, so I was excited to get the opportunity to work at Lulu’s! I love getting to meet all of the pups that come in and see how great they look after their grooms. When I’m not working I like to spend time with my family and travel as much as I can.
Natalie – Sales Associate
I started at Lulu & Luigi in October of 2017. I have a 4-year-old Bullmastiff named Mabel, 4 cats and a bunny! It’s a full house! Before joining the Lulu’s team, I worked as a kennel attendant at a vet clinic. I came here to still be able to work with dogs but wanted to get a different experience. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family and friends and go on road trips Up North.
Lori – Sales Associate
My connection with animals led me to my BS degree from Colorado State University in Pre-Veterinary Equine Science, which ties with another passion, riding dressage horses. Life’s poetic “taking the road less traveled” brought me to education & my Masters in Curriculum, & I’m currently teaching 5th grade with Wayzata schools. I appreciate the quality, personalized feel of LuLu & Luigi, which started as a client with our adorable & spunky now 1 ½ year old Havanese, Chester. We also have 2 black, rescue sister kitties, Sheila & Fiona, who are 10. Each & every staff member here truly strives for excellence, & seeing happy clients & their pets brings me joy. However, my greatest loves are my 2 kids, Garrett & Sabrina, currently both at the U of MN Twin Cities. In my free time, I enjoy riding dressage, gardening & landscaping, time with friends, & reading good

Having raised Rough Collies for much of my adult life, I have such an admiration and appreciation for the wonderful work of the professional groomers here at Lulu and Luigi!! I really enjoy meeting all the clients (and their humans) whenever I am working and helping new pet owners with the little things you need when a new fur baby joins the family is the best! It is a blessing to be able to work with such great people, look forward to going to work and be able to bring my dog along with me. Sabian and I look forward to meeting you soon!
Laura – Sales Associate
I started at Lulu and Luigi’s in 2017 after working several other jobs in the pet industry. I have two dogs and two cats, sometimes more if i have any fosters. When I am not at Lulu’s you will find me baking, hanging out at Dog Friendly Breweries, or snuggling with the fur kids watching Friends.
Rachel – Pet Stylist
I’ve always loved working with animals! Throughout high school I interned at Como Zoo, worked in a few pet stores and loved dog sitting for my friends! I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to become a groomer 4 years ago! I get to spend every day with dogs and form relationships with them, as well as be creative! Luna, my French Bulldog, and I love working at Lulu and Luigi!
Caitlin – Pet Stylist
I am married and a mother of four. My sweet daughter, Autumn, keeps me on my toes. I also have two crazy dogs, Ryder and Koda, and a cat, Cora. I have been grooming since 2014. I love all animals, big and small. When grooming I am very patient and calm with all dogs. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, animals and going on walks outside. I have awesome coworkers and the clients are amazing! I can’t wait to meet you and your furbabies!
