Lancy Woo - Owner, Lead Groomer
Lancy was born and raised in the heart of San Francisco. She has always been drawn to animals and even as a young child remembers wanting to be around them as much as possible. Lancy has been a Bay Area groomer for over 20 years and truly loves what she does. Lancy is a WWPSA (Western Word Pet Supply Association) certified dog groomer and continues to hone her skills through workshops and courses. VIP is not just her job, it is her passion.
When Lancy took over ownership of VIP, she wanted to be the best shop in town by providing exceptional service and creating a fun and loving atmosphere for the animals. She wanted to create a family; a place where everyone loved coming to work and everyone felt taken care of, a place where pet owners felt known and where they knew their animals were being cared for by loving hands. It is important for her to know she is making a difference in the life of every dog that enters VIP’s doors. She believes she has created this at VIP and so does the community who voted VIP Best in the Bay 6 times.
