I joined the VCA Midpark Animal Hospital team in August of 2010. I began working in an animal hospital almost 15 years ago. During that time I also managed a grooming salon. Veterinary medicine has always been my passion. Growing up with dogs (my first baby sitter was a German Shepherd, Piper) encouraged me to pursue my dream of working with animals. Knowing that I can help an animal in need and assist owners in making decisions in the best interest of their pet gives me great satisfaction. I feel our pets are our children. I have had several over the years and still have many ranging in age from 1-13. They mean the world to me. In my spare time I love spending time with my loved ones, family and friends.
