Betsy Knight first developed an interest in pet grooming shortly after high school while working at Shake-A-Paw, a puppy store in upstate New York. Deciding to try her hand at this skill, she enrolled in a grooming course at Orange-Ulster BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) and received her certificate in the fundamental of dog grooming. She then worked for several years as a bather, groomer apprentice, dog and cat groomer and dog training assistant in the Newburgh, New York, area.

In 2002, Betsy moved to the Golden Isles and was employed as a dog and cat groomer at Island Animal Hospital, St. Simons Island, until December of 2008 when her son was born. She is currently at Seabreeze Grooming on St. Simons Island.

Betsy received her Associate of Science Degree from Coastal Georgia Community College in 2006, and is working on her Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies from Armstrong Atlantic University.

Betsy, husband Swen, and son Garrick live in Brunswick, Georgia, where they share their home with Magic Man, a rescued French bulldog, and three rescued cats (Mookie, Mimi and Merlin).
