"From a very young age I have held a strong passion for animals. I have carried that passion into a career and I am dedicated not only to help each and every animal but also their families that love them. My goal is for every one of our patients and their families to feel as comfortable as possible and to work personally with each and every client to keep them well informed so that they have the knowledge they need to make the best decisions possible for their furr babies. After all your pets are members of our VCA family too."

“I became a veterinary technician because I love working with animals. I particularly specialize in the training of dogs in sport, obedience, and behavior modification. It seemed only natural to include medical training as well! I enjoy educating clients on what is best for the health and happiness of their pet. For me, the reward is in seeing pets at their full potential.”
