Growing up as a gypsy in a military family, I have had a love for animals since I was a child. I knew one day I would be in the medical field and decided after veterinary technician school to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical science with a minor in animal science. After working in Emergency and Research for several years I decided that nursing was my calling, I got advanced certification in Emergency and critical care and Anesthesia. I love teaching new technicians, educating clients on how to help their pets live the longest, healthiest life possible. I am happy to be back home in the valley after a 2 yr. hiatus. I am finally home and back with my family and friends. My dog Violet is my heart and soul, and we enjoy backpacking, trekking, skiing and pretty much anything outdoors.
