QC Pet Studies Student & Alumni Spotlights

Casey Bechard

Casey graduated from QC Pet Studies back in 2018. Since then, she’s worked her way up in the professional world and is now the Salon Manager at Off The Leash Pet Grooming. While Casey’s knowledge allows her to work with a wide variety of pooches, her specialty lies with curly-coated breeds.

Fun fact: Casey is also a bi-monthly contributor to QC’s blog, Sniffin’ Around! We invite you to check out her articles here.

Melanie Roias

Melanie joined QC Pet Studies as an already-certified dog groomer. However, she was looking to advance her education and learn more about health and safety on the job. As such, she enrolled in QC’s First Aid for Groomers Course at the beginning of 2021 – and graduated within a month of submitting her first Unit!

As part of her promise to clients, Melanie guarantees “dog grooming services offered in a private, calm, one-on-one setting”. Her business, Bark and Bow Grooming, services customers in the Toronto and GTA areas.

Alesha Stanley

Alesha began working with dogs in the year 2017 and, as she says, has “loved every minute of it”. After working at a boarding kennel/doggy daycare, she soon discovered that her real career interest was dog grooming.

Thus, Alesha became a QC Pet Studies student back in 2019. She first graduated from her First Aid for Groomers Course in June of that year. After that, she successfully became an International Dog Grooming Professional (IDGP) in April of 2020.

Since then, Alesha has found employment and success as a dog groomer for established salons. For the past year, she’s been working at Fido’s Place in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.

Camille Torkornoo

Camille is a Poodle expert, through and through. That being said, her grooming skills go far beyond just this one breed! She first enrolled with QC Pet Studies back in 2019 and has been working her way through her programs ever since.

When she’s not busy acing her assignments, Camille also frequently competes in dog shows with her talented Poodle, Moriah. She is also the owner of Mount Zion Kennels, offering her clients in Eugene, Oregon, both grooming and breeding services.

Like Casey, Camille is also a regular guest writer for QC Pet Studies’ blog. You can check out her past articles here!
