Special Interests

I very much enjoyed my education in veterinary medicine and continue to seek learning opportunities so that I can keep growing within an ever evolving field. I am especially interested in emergency and critical care as it consistently presents a variety of challenges. The ability to help critically ill patients return home to their families is beyond rewarding, and why I love what I do.

Why I do what I do

I started at EIVSC in 2011. Working at the specialty center has allowed me to develop new skills and to broaden my horizons as a veterinary technician. It has also given me the opportunity to work side by side with an amazing team of individuals who are both coworkers and friends.


When I'm not at work I enjoy reading, going to the movies and spending time outdoors with my husband, daughter, and our friends. I also have two dogs and three cats that demand their share of my time and attention, which I'm very happy to provide.
