I knew I would work with animals ever since I was a little kid, and I began down that career path in 2005. I started out working at a fast-paced pet daycare and boarding facility, followed by working at a high quality animal hospital. I joined the Animal Medical Clinic of Wheaton’s team in 2013 as a technician. My favorite parts of working here are practicing excellent patient care and seeing a variety of exotic animals. I also have a special interest in surgery, periodontal therapy and radiology. My husband and I have a perfect little boy, two active dogs & three playful cats – our pets are all boys and all rescues! In the future, my goal is to have a small hobby farm with chickens, goats, and horses. I enjoy spending my free time hiking, reading and baking.
