The Paw Spa

Meet Our Stylists

Debbie Pratto, Proprietor & Pet Stylist

Debbie Pratto has been in the grooming industry since 1995. When her corporate career came to a screeching halt after 13 years in the finance and technology divisions of the San Diego based Price Club, she found herself volunteering spare time working with the family grooming business. What she didn't realize was that introduction to the grooming industry would later become her passion, leading her into a whole new career. She began her own business in 1995 and became the former owner of Paws 'n' Claws mobile grooming in San Diego. Debbie ventured up to Newport Beach, CA and started The Paw Spa in the heart of town in 2002. She continues educating herself and employees by attending trade shows regularly and working closely with local veternarians to continue her education. 

Karen Twist, Pet Stylist

Karen Twist has been a groomer for 20 years. She started out at the Pedigree grooming school where she gained the basic skills and training for the grooming world. Upon graduation, she became a vet technician followed by a pet stylist. She gained her first grooming experience where she fine tuned her skills at a shop in Coral Springs, FL and remained there for 8 years. After relocating to the West Coast, she began to search for a successful, well maintained grooming shop in Orange County. She finally found The Paw Spa and knew immediately she wanted to be there. The Paw Spa Quickly saw Karen's careful yet quick ability to perform breed styling, therefore landing her the opportunity to join the Paw Spa team in 2005. She hopes to continue making her customers happy by keeping their babies looking and feeling great!
