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.
Cheri B. – Integration Manager
Cheri hails from Burlington County and grew up owning a veritable menagerie of animals. She quickly developed a passion for anything with fur, feathers, or scales. She often wears many hats, transitioning from receptionist, to veterinary technician, to management at a moment’s notice. She is a proud pet mommy to two bun-buns, three cats (one with cerebellar hyperplasia), and her deaf and blind doxie.
Cheri was an academic over-achiever in a field of study that has little if anything to do with her chosen career path. Cheri’s hobbies and interests include the visual arts, social/political activism, watching documentaries, reading and making comics, lounging in hammocks, and getting bad haircuts.
Cheri emphatically believes that pets are family that you get to pick, and deserve the same level of attention, affection, and care that you would provide any other family member. Working for Bathing Beauties Mobile Grooming, HousePaws Mobile Veterinary Service, and PETS Emergency Transfer Service, she looks forward to doing her best to help you provide your four-legged family members with that care.

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.
Simone L. – Groomer (dogs and cats) (picture to come)
Hi. I’m Simone! Let’s start off with why I got into pet grooming. I went to high school originally to become a veterinarian. During my four years in school we also groomed. During those four years, I came to realize I had more talent to make a dog look and feel better then I did to treat them for ailments (I also couldn’t stomach it). Due to this realization and growing passion, I wanted to continue to groom. I applied to work for a grooming and boarding facility. At this particular shop, there were also rescue dogs being boarded. Some of these dogs were found on the streets or surrendered in horrible conditions. As I began my journey of grooming, I had to groom and help these poor souls. Once these dogs were cleaned up and free of mats, debris, scabbing, it was like these dogs had a new outlook on life. They didn’t feel miserable or look miserable. Some had more pep in their step then when they first came to board. It was like these dogs gained their life back. For this reason and many more, is why I chose to continue grooming and to keep bettering my skills. I have been grooming since graduating in 2008 and can’t imagine myself doing anything else. Despite my young looks, I’ve got quite a bit of experience so no need to worry. My goal is to give you and your pets the best grooming experience possible and all my love. I look forward to grooming your furry best friend. See you soon!
Traci – Groomer (dogs and cats)
Amanda V. – Receptionist
I come from a six year retail based customer service background. I absolutely love working with people, and by joining the Bathing Beauties team I am able to broaden my experiences and add in furry clients as well!
I was raised in Bellmawr, NJ with my side-kick…I mean brother, who would help me convince my parents of getting any kitten we deemed as “perfect” for us. Here is where I grew a love for cats although I had a couple of dwarf hamsters and a beta fish in the pet family. I currently live in Runnemede with my parents, brother, and daughter. We have two cats, Delilah and Peko who have been in our family for 9 years. I have accepted my life as a cat-lady and love the fact that my daughter is one as well. In my down time I am usually being held captive to watch children’s movies over and over or forced into dance parties that never end. However, personally I enjoy watching Food Network to then create new meals for my family, crying over Grey’s Anatomy, and finding new adventures with my side-kick and daughter.
I cannot wait to see the growth to come to Bathing Beauties as well as personal growth this position will bring. I am also excited to work with our amazing grooming team to bring you the best mobile grooming experience! …this is where you throw mud on your pet so we can meet you (hint, hint).
