NEW YORK, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Downtown Doghouse congratulates their stylist Mackensie Murphy on her first Groomer of the Year nomination. Every year, Cardinal Crystal recognizes four top groomers as "outstanding examples of their craft." All grooming industry professionals are eligible to vote. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on July 22, 2014 at Superzoo, The National Pet Show for Retailers, in Las Vegas.

Murphy has been grooming competitively for three years. Remarkably, after only one year of competitive grooming, she was invited to be a member of Groom Team USA, the elite grooming team that travels the globe. "I am excited for her -- Groom Team USA is the Olympic Team of Grooming and the Cardinal Crystal Awards are the Academy Awards of Grooming," said Downtown Doghouse owner, Nancy Chinchar.

Mackensie Murphy has worked as a stylist for 10 years. She works at Downtown Doghouse when she is not at grooming competitions. She lives in New York City with her American Cocker Spaniel and Bedlington Terrier, both of whom sport award winning show trims.
