Position: Veterinary Technician
Education: Associate degree in Science and Veterinary technology at Johnson College

Are you from this area?

I grew up in Danville and moved to Laceyville in 2015 when I met my now fiancé at college.

Why are you in Veterinary medicine?

Helping animals is my passion.  Being able to treat a living creature that can’t speak to you makes me extremely happy.  Watching animals grow old from a puppy on up is the best because we get to take care of them their entire lives.

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing the smile on a pet owners face when we are able to fix/help their pet when they don’t think there is anything that can be done to save them.

Why do you work for SAAH?

The happy atmosphere here is awesome.  We all feel like a family while having fun at work and helping animals.

What do you do as a hobby or on your time off?

Horseback riding, spending time outdoors, and taking care of my animals, which include six cats, two horses, four rabbits, two rats, and my dog.
