Meet our Team

Kate Coburn

Professional Groomer/ Owner

Kate lives with her family on a horse farm just outside of Durham. She enjoys spending time with her kids, dogs and horses. Kate spent years as a riding coach and gained her instructors certification with CHA in 2010. She also earned a Diploma in Equine Studies with the University of Guelph in 2012. Kate began her career as a dog groomer in 2004 by volunteering at Ardiel Animal Hospital. She immediately was drawn to the grooming salon in the clinic and spent a year apprenticing under their groomer. Kate went on to work at the hospital as their main groomer for 10 years. She also gained valuable experience working in other animal hospitals and pet salons before deciding to take the leap and open her own salon. It has been a long time dream of Kate’s to own her own business and Bath & Biscuit came from dream to reality in January 2016.
