Special Interests

I love working in specialty medicine. It's exciting and it allows me to learn constantly. I love that I get to be directly involved in helping a patient. Things happen quickly in emergency medicine and often you get to see the progress within minutes. I also love interacting with our human clients. Having to use our services can be extremely stressful and scary. I love being a support system for them. One positive interaction has the ability to completely change how your day is going.

Why I Love What I Do

I spend every moment I can with my husband Zarick, son Logan, our two boxers Tyson and Zena and our beautiful cat, Fatty. We love to travel, spend time outside when at all possible and try any new restaurants we can find.


My husband, Scott, and I live in a small town near Tama. Our family includes our 2 daughters, Madalyn and Evelyn, as well as our dogs Monster and Camo, and our cat, Blade. We are a very busy family. We volunteer for the Jefferson High School Booster Club, by popping popcorn during football season. We also play softball in the spring, summer, and fall, as well as golfing and disc golfing. When we aren’t doing one of those things, we like to spend time with family and friends, grilling and watching movies.
