I wanted to work in veterinary medicine because of my love of animals. I try to make each visit as positive as possible for every pet that comes in. My husband Tom, and our 2 mini Rex rabbits Zander and Rocky make up my family. Like my colleagues and our clients, my pets mean the world to me. I also dog sit on the side and my dream is to eventually board a few horses on my property and run a dog boarding facility.
