"Growing up, I've had pets as long as I can remember-though they were a bit untraditional (white ducks and mallards). From there I have had rabbits, birds fish, a turtle , dogs, and cats as memebers of my family. I enjoy working with animals and like being a part of ensuring others' family members are healthy. I find it rewarding to interact with owners and their pets."

"I have been lucky to enjoy what I do for the past 25+ years. I have worked in numerous hospitals over the years, but now find myself here at VCA Delmarva enjoying going back to my roots of patient care and client education. The doctors and staff here at VCA Delmarva have an exceptional level of expectation of patient care which inspires me to be a better pet nurse and advocate of the pet companion."
