    Why I do what I do....

    I have always had a great love for all animals, as a child I would bring strays home or feed animals that I thought may be hungry.  Growing up I worked on a farm helping to take care of chickens and goats.  After many years in the human medical field, I decided it was time to pursue my passion.  That passion led me to VCA Lockwood Ridge Animal Hospital, every day I get to wake up and go to work knowing that at the end of the day we made a difference to an animal, whether it was to make them feel better from an illness or keeping their health on track with prevention.  It is the absolute best feeling in the world.  With 4 cat family members and 4 dog family members in my house I know how important it is to have a veterinary office that I trust and believe in, that's why our office is so great.  Everyone here has so much love for animals that it makes my job that much easier.  I know that all the clients and pets that come in are getting the absolute best care from our staff.
