I have wanted to work in the animal field since I was a little girl. My parents were animal lovers, who encouraged my interests in animals. I graduated with my RVT status in 1999. I joined Sunrise in May 1997 as an assistant, I started as a summer job while doing the technician program at NSAC.
The field of veterinary dentistry is an interest of mine, as well as working on helping feral cat colonies, through our TNR program. My first pets were: Joey, a black Labrador-Beagle mix that my parents got just before I was born and then a Domestic Shorthair black cat named Misty. The thing I love most about my job is being able to help creatures that can not help themselves. What I love so much about Sunrise Animal Hospital is being able to use all the skills I learned as a technician while being encouraged to learn more. I love that I feel like this is not a clinic, but rather my clinic and that I am encouraged to have a say and my input is valued.
I love crafts of all sorts, I love rats, I love roller coasters but am afraid of heights.
