HousePaws Mobile Veterinary Service – General Management
Bathing Beauties is owned and operated by Dr. Lisa Aumiller. Bathing Beauties general management is run by HousePaws. HousePaws has been in operation since 2012. Our dedication to individualized and comfortable care for pets lead us to want to add the concierge service of grooming at home.
We also believe that groomers are a part of the pet’s health care team by not only keeping them beautiful, but also recognizing early problems so pets ultimately live healthier, happier and cleaner lives.

Jesse – Groomer (dogs only)
I am a dog groomer by profession, but I am a true lover of all animals at heart. From the time I was a little girl, I felt a special connection to animals. Dogs weren’t just dogs. They were “dog people,” as I called them at 3 years old. In my eyes, they still are…
As a child, I’d bring home all kinds of strays and injured critters, from orphaned kittens to flightless pigeons to baby chipmunks. To this day, I can’t just drive past a lost dog without pulling over to help him find his way home, or simply swerve around a turtle in the middle of the road. I’ll get out and stop traffic, pick him up and carry him to safety.
So it’s no surprise that I ended up working with animals. It is truly something I was meant to do. After years working my way through college as a waitress or doing other odd jobs, I took a job as a dog bather at a salon in Philly. I thought it was a temporary gig while I finished grad school. I apprenticed at that salon, learned to groom under a master groomer and went on to work there for the next 4 years.
When I began mobile grooming with Bathing Beauties in 2012, I truly found my niche. I love being on the road with new scenery each day. I especially love the relationships I have developed with my clients over the years. Some of my clients have become almost like family.
Despite thinking this was just a stepping stone while I finished my education,10 years and 2 college degrees later, I’m still grooming dogs and I couldn’t be happier. I love going to work every day. I get to make a living doing something that I’m very passionate about. For that, I’m very grateful.
Bonnie – Groomer (dogs and cats)
I was born and raised in NYC. From a very early age I always knew I wanted to work with animals. Putting myself through college, I worked at 2 veterinary hospitals in Brooklyn and Manhattan. When I moved to New Jersey, I took a job at a kennel in 2002. It was here that I was bitten by the grooming bug. The owner bred top show Cocker Spaniels. He showed me the art of bathing, drying and brushing. I later moved on to work and manage a boarding and grooming business for an AKC judge breeder, handler. I continued to learn more and more about grooming. It wasn’t until 2012 that I got serious about becoming a groomer. I believe everyone is born with at least 1 gift. Some people are fortunate to know from early on what those gifts are others ‘discover’ it. I like to think it has been a little of both for me. I always knew I had the touch with animals but it was a while before I realized I had a skill.One of the greater joys in life is being able to share yourself(gifts) with others.
