Q: Tell us about yourself and your experience with animals?
A: My first job ever was at a veterinary clinic when I was a freshman in high school. I fell in love with the profession and I haven’t left. I worked as an assistant/tech for many years before going to school to become an RVT. As an RVT I worked for 4 years in a general practice and have spent the past 3 years working in ER & Critical Care. While I enjoy all aspects of being a technician, ER & Critical Care are my favorite. I enjoy the challenging and fast-paced environment.
Q: What is a fun fact about yourself?
A: I have a 3-legged dog who has titles in agility, barn hunt and nose work. In addition to being active in dog sports, she is also a registered therapy dog who spends several hours a week doing therapy dog visits.
Q: What motivates you to volunteer with World Vets?
A: The fulfilling feeling of giving back! I love that World Vets is able to provide veterinary care at no cost to the communities it serves.
Q: What was your favorite World Vets moment?
A: Watching the same little boy (~6 years old) return 4 different times with different animals each time in order for them to receive the veterinary care we were providing during Community Outreach Day.
