  • Denise O.
    Groomer

    Denise was born and raised in Terre Haute, IN. After graduating from North High School she began her career at Terre Haute First National Bank. This is where she met her husband, William O'Rourke. Upon his retirement from the bank they made the decision to relocate to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1996. It was a cooler climate and they enjoyed the beautiful outdoors.
     
    In 1999 Denise decided to pursue her passion of Dog Grooming. She attended Colorado Dog Grooming Academy and graduated the end of 1999. Soon after, they opened a salon/retail business in Falcon, Colorado. It was fantastic having a 'job' she thoroughly enjoyed. 

    The year 2019 brought so many changes to her life. Her husband passed away in December 2019. Shortly after that the world was turned upside down due to the Corona Virus. Her salon was then closed down several weeks which made her choose to travel back home to Terre Haute. That decision opened up a great opportunity for her to become a part of the Heritage Animal Hospital family. She is excited about starting this new chapter as well as meeting and grooming your fur babies. She wants to make a solemn promise to always take care of them like they are her own!!

    Denise shares her home with a very sweet Standard Poodle named Zeus that owns her!!

She has even taken in a couple cats from Heritage that needed to find fur-ever homes! One really cute story is from when Alex was a child; she would ask for dog treats & food for Christmas to feed neighborhood strays.
