About The Author
Jennifer Bishop Jenkins is the owner of Love Fur Dogs and the Train To Groom program at the Bishop Academy of Grooming, located in the Hubbard Woods Plaza Shopping Center on the Glencoe-Winnetka border in the Chicago North Shore suburbs. Jennifer was one of the first few dozen people in the nation’s history to earn the elite title of Certified Master Groomer. Jennifer began her career working with animals when she started breeding and showing German Shepherds in the 1980’s. Since then she has owned a grooming shop, taught at three vocational grooming schools, run a boarding kennel, and titled several breeds of dogs in both obedience and conformation. She also bred and owned Himalayan cats. Jennifer’s dedication to vocationally training a new generation of loving pet groomers has been inspired by her daughter’s disability that has turned her to a career with animals. Jennifer is also a leading victims’ rights activist and the Director of Marsy’s Law for Illinois. Following the murder of her sister Nancy, her brother-in-law, and their unborn child in Winnetka in 1990 Jennifer became a respected and award-winning activist against violence and to help crime victims. Jennifer taught High School Social Studies for 25 years and is married to Bill Jenkins, an Associate Professor at Dominican University. They live in Northfield with their two college age daughters and their two Australian Shepherds. Jennifer can be reached at 312-882-4584 or JenniferBJenkins@aol.com. The Grooming Shop can be reached by calling 847-LUV-DOGS or at LoveFurDogs@aol.com for the grooming shop, or TrainToGroom@aol.com for the vocational school.
