Director of Client Relations / Practical Application Instructor
Tim Prior, a Nash Graduate, handles Client Relations for the Nash Academy, and he is a favorite with both human and canine patrons who enjoy his upbeat personality and sincere interest in them. A trained dog groomer, Tim came to Nash Academy to study grooming from upstate New York. Tim got his first job as a dog bather when he was 18, and enjoyed working with the dogs so much that he decided to pursue a career as a professional dog groomer and stylist. After his course of study at Nash, when he returned to his New York home, he kept in touch with Tanya Nash about returning to the Lexington academy, and eventually became the Nash Academy's first intern, and never left: this was five years ago. Tim is also a teaching assistant for the Nash Academy's online courses in dog grooming. Newly married to his wife, Elena, in January of 2005, Tim personifies the Nash ethic of compassion and kindness.
