Jessika Bailey, Owner & Groomer
Jess was born and raised in Grinnell. From 4th grade through her senior year, she was actively involved in 4-H, showing her dogs, horses, and rabbits. Upon graduating high school in 2002, she attended Kirkwood Community College in 2003. While in school, she began working for a pet store, where her interest in grooming bloomed. A year later, she had become a pet groomer! Her first clients gladly came to her home for services, provided on her dining room table in her kitchen. She had her first son, Deken, in 2007, and in 2008 she officially opened Bailey's Funny Farm! Later, in 2010, she had her second child, daughter Journey.
Jessika's dream has become her reality, and she hopes to grow her business even more. "Without clients, there is no dream!" She always has an open ear for her clients, and takes every comment and concern with care. She loves each and every client - human and dog - that walks through the door. In her free time, she enjoys going on trail rides with her horses and spending time with her family outdoors.
At home, Jessika has quite the fur-family! Between herself and her fiancé Ray, they have seven kids: Blake, Madison, Kyndra, Deken, and Journey. They have many dogs, horses, and numerous pet rats, cats, and fish. At the shop, you can meet her lionhead rabbit, Juno.
