Owner and Groomer
Nicole Smith

My name is Nicole Smith and I am the proud owner of Grooming by Nicole. I am married to a wonderful man, Jim. I have a beautiful daughter who is now 14 years old, Mikayla. I also have 1 stepdaughter, Kirsten, and 1 stepson, Ryan.  I am a proud member of The Bardstown Christian Fellowship network, belonging specifically to Redeemer Fellowship. I have lived in the Bardstown area for my whole life. I have always had a love for animals and as a child, I wanted to be a veterinarian. Because of the long, extensive schooling that it takes to become a vet I decided to look for a different career that would still deal with animals.  I have been grooming dogs for 18 years now and wouldn't have it any other way. I graduated from the Nash Academy of Animal Arts in Lexington. I worked at a pet grooming facility in Middletown for 2 years. Then I had my daughter and took a couple of months off. Deciding that it would be a huge strain driving to Middletown with an infant, I ended up grooming at a vet in town, Central Ky Animal Clinic. I never dreamed of owning and operating such an extensive business but the Lord has been very generous to me and I give all the credit to him. God has blessed me tremendously in my personal life and also in my business. Well, that's enough about me, take a look at the rest of my staff.

Danielle Lyvers

Hi, my name is Danielle Lyvers.  I went to grooming school at the Nash Academy of Animal Arts in Lexington Ky. I graduated in 2012 and then started at Grooming by Nicole's in November of 2012.  So far, I love it here! It is the best job that I have ever had. I live in an apartment with my boyfriend, Alex. We have 3 dogs total. Bella and Blacky are our 2 pitbull babies. I also have a toy aussie named Zilla, that I bought from Nicole. I couldn't be happier here and I love grooming each and every dog that comes to see us.  I can't wait to groom your dog!!

Sarah Wimsatt

Hi!! My name is Sarah Wimsatt and I am now a groomer at Grooming by Nicole's.  I am a 2002 graduate of Nelson County High and a 2004 graduate of Trend Setters Academy in Etown. I received my license in cosmetology there.  After pursuring that dream for many years, I wanted to find something a little more reliable but still be able to be creative and love what I do. I have found it, pet grooming!! I really love my job and expect to be here for many years to come.  I love each and every one of these bundles of joy.  I really take pride in my work! Grooming by Nicole is truly the best - hands down!!
