Frankie joined our hospital in April of 2005 as a Veterinary Technician. She was born and raised in New Mexico, and has been passionate about animals since early childhood. While her parents and sister have always been strictly "cat people", as a child, Frankie was forever bringing home dogs and cats, rabbits, hamsters, snakes, and spiders, and even managed to talk her father into a horse.
When she isn't working, Frankie likes to spend her time camping and fishing with her family, reading anything she can get her hands on, and she is a huge football fan. Frankie's busy household includes four cats, two dogs, two ferrets, three children, and one very patient husband. She recently became a first time grandma in 2012! Now, Frankie spends most of her free time spoiling her grandson.
