"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 can’t imagine not having animals in my life. Born and raised on the Eastern Shore, I am the fourth of five girls. I spent the first 5 years of my life in Berlin, MD on a pony farm. We then became the typical Delmarva family by moving to a chicken farm (ugh!) in Laurel, DE. Besides chickens, we also had horses, goats, a milk cow, a pot-bellied pig, chinchillas, peacocks, sheep, llamas, dogs, cats, and even an emu! After graduating from Delmar High School, I received my Associates degree from Delaware Tech and shortly thereafter became a licensed Vet Tech. I have been practicing in this field for over 20 years, and I love what I do! Educating clients on proper health care for their furry 4-legged children is what is most rewarding about my job."

"When I was a little girl I lived on a farm so we were always getting stray animals.
I would always take them in and feed them and give them a lot of love.
The sick ones I would do my best to nurse back to health. I eventually got the
Nickname Ellie Clampett. My passion for animals eventually led me to become a
Veterinary Technician. Which I Have found to be very rewarding."
