She applied for a receptionist position at a small animal hospital thinking it would be fun to interact with the clients and their pets, and work with people who shared her love of animals. In 2010, VCA Animal Hospitals acquired the hospital where she worked and she was transferred to VCA Valley Animal Medical Center and Emergency Hospital to assist the hospital manager and shortly thereafter she was promoted to office manager.
