Though her time spent at Southwick Animal Hosptial lies in Client Services, her background was spent in quite a different world. That world consisted of a humane society, wildlife and raptor rehab, and an exotic practice that dwells in - to only name a few- very large parrots, even the sneaky little ones, pocket pets (not all would fit in a pocket!), lizards of all shapes and sizes, and all species of zoo life - lions, tigers, and bears - Oh My! and lets not forget those primate dentals! Wendie, Jeff, and their beautiful daughter Taylor share their home with "Libi", the spoiled Siamese mix and 2 birds "Tweety" & "Leo".
