I joined the Animal Medical Clinic of Wheaton’s team in November of 2013 as the hospital manager; however, my career in veterinary medicine began in 1999. I started as a technician, and over the years, realized my draw toward management (although I still love the nursing aspect!) . I find exceptional gratification in building relationships both with our clients and our patients, & being a part of a team that shares the same dedication & love for animals as I do is also extremely rewarding. From an early age, I always knew that I was destined to be in the animal healthcare field and can’t imagine doing anything else. I am owned by a dog -MayDay (May for short, who I found in the middle of a road during rush hour traffic, hence her name), and 3 cats – Eve, Little Guy, & Charlie. Away from the hospital, most of my time is well spent with my daughter, Natalie. When I do have free time I enjoy horseback riding, cooking, and spending time with my family & friends.
