Hi everyone! My name is Jodi Murphy, and I want to share a little about myself with ABC graduates.
I have been a member of Groom Team USA for four years ranking within the top four groomers in the country.
In 2004 I was ranked the number one groomer in the United States. I was also awarded Best American Groomer in 2005 and 2006 for my multiple wins in the contest ring.
I stamped the international contest ring in 2004, where I won both gold and bronze medals in Barcelona, Spain.
I captured the World Championship title in the prestigious Oster Invitational Tournament of Champions in 2006.
Becoming one of the top four groomers in the country landed me a position on the travelling team for Groom Team USA. It was one of my biggest accomplishments. International competition was an unbelievable experience, plus travelling to these amazing places while doing something I love made it that more fabulous.
In Milan, Italy, I defeated the best of the world in a competition consisting of 13 countries of world renown groomers and walked away with yet another gold in 2007.
After achieving all my goals in the contest ring, I am now here to share my many years of knowledge and experience.
Some of you might wonder how any of what I just shared is relevant.
First, current GIP students of Animal Behavior College have started to watch several of my videos, which are now part of the curriculum at ABC. I am very excited about this. My passion has always been to educate groomers!
Secondly, for ABC alumni, I would love for you to have the opportunity to learn from me as well. I have produced a complete instructional video series available to help educate new groomers and help seasoned groomers hone their skills. My continuously growing library of videos is now available through my streaming site; watch.jodimurphy.net.
As part of my support for continuing groomer education and special for ABC alumni, all GIP alums who subscribe to my library can get the following discounts.
- 10% off on a monthly subscription
- 15% for three months
- 20% for 12 months
I sincerely hope that ABC groomer graduates will subscribe and continue their educational path. In future editions, I will share more offers, stories, and opportunities, but for now, I will close by saying it’s great to be a part of this group, and best wishes for your continued education!
We never stop learning in this industry!
