    I grew up and currently live in Red Wing, MN. I’ve always owned dogs and volunteered at animal shelters while growing up. I have worked at Feist Animal Hospital for 1 ½ years, working my way up from a kennel assistant to a CVT. I have a 15 year old Springer Spaniel X named Chewbacca, who I’ve had since she was a puppy. I attended UW-River Falls for 3 years as a biomedical major. I then took some time off, changed majors, and decided to attend Argosy University, where I obtained an AAS degree in Veterinary Technology. I also work part-time at the Humane Society of Goodhue County, again trying to help animals in need. In my free time I’m training to become a National Animal Control Officer, and I am a Firearm Safety Instructor in Goodhue County.
