I must confess, I’m smitten by cats in mittens! Smoochie is the tuxedo love of my life; Ying is my sassy-pants calico. I’m currently holding at two kit cats but there’s always room for more, isn’t there?

Personal Interests:
My refreshing comes in the form of any physical activity. Biking, weight training and snow skiing are my current habits. I love digging in the dirt and planting things but am just a horticulturist want to – be. I love my church, a good campfire and fast cars. I am honored to volunteer my time at the Washington National Zoo. It has provided a great opportunity to ultrasound many different species and many interesting cases. But I especially love helping the animals and the people I see at VCA SouthPaws.
