Are you from this area?

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

Why are you in Veterinary medicine?

Helping animals is my passion. It has been since I was 11 years old. 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. I want to be the voice for those that need help.

What do you love most about your job?

The most gratifying experience is being able to treat an animal that is very sick and help it get better.

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. I have never felt more welcomed and appreciated anywhere else. It’s such a great place to work.

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

My time out of the hospital is filled with my children, husband, and animals. We have a small hobby farm with horses and chickens.
