Andis-Sponsored Groom Team USA Wins Gold Medal at International Pet Grooming Competition

Sturtevant, WI (November 2013) – Groom Team USA, a non-profit organization that encourages professional pet stylists to maximize their education and skills, recently competed and won gold at the Artero International Grooming Competition held in Barcelona, Spain last month. Groom Team USA is sponsored in part by Wisconsin-based Andis Company, a leading manufacturer of grooming tools for professionals and at-home consumers.

The six-member traveling team competed against top groomers from 16 other countries. As a lead sponsor of Groom Team USA, Andis is involved in all events and functions of the team and supplies clippers, trimmers, brushes, combs and other tools to help the team create award-winning grooms.

With Barcelona being her last international competition, veteran Groom Team USA member, Michell Evans, looks to continue her influence on professional grooming.  As an Andis spokesperson, she recently won the Barkleigh Honors Award for Up and Coming Judge of the Year at the Barkleigh Honors Awards Ceremony held September 21, 2013 in Hershey, PA.

“It is such an honor to be acknowledged and elected by my peers – this validates all the hard work and effort I’ve done to champion this industry,” said Evans. “Being a judge is a key role I’m proud to take on as it helps evolve the style and standards of dog grooming.”

Evans has been a regular member of GroomTeam USA since 2009 and was the hand stripping member of the silver medal-winning team in Belgium in 2011 and the gold medal-winning team in Spain this year. Currently, she is set to open her grooming salon, Canine Perfection, in Oswego, OR.
