Pets: Autumn and Macie (Wowzers: Schnauzer/Westie cross). I adopted 'double and trouble' when they were only 9 weeks old. Their previous owner had purchased them to be companions for their older dog, but the older dog despised them, so was looking for a new home for them. Initially I was only going to keep one, but after one night, I could not part with either one of them. Olive -- a golden retriever that I picked up from a small farm in Pennsylvania. She is the perfect addition to balance out my pack.

Personal Facts: I grew up in a small town in Kansas. My grandparents owned/operated a dairy farm, where I spent a lot of time in the Summer. I knew that I wanted to be a Veterinarian since I was a little girl. I feel fortunate to have the best job in the world. Outside of working, I like to spend time with my family and friends, travel and spend time outdoors.

Member of the VCA SouthPaws Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Center team since August 2007.
