I am originally from Chicago, IL and have lived in Arizona since 1995. I have always been an animal lover and knew that veterinary medicine was the right place for me. As a little girl I would use my dolly stroller and roll our cats around our house (thank goodness they were tolerant). I have been at University Veterinary Hospital since 1997 and truly enjoy what I do every day!
I have been a CVT since 2004 and am currently the Nursing Supervisor here at the hospital. I am very passionate about patient care, preventative medicine and love helping animals in need. Making a cat purr or getting a dog to wag it’s tail truly fills me up!
Currently our home is ran by our 3 kitties: Turtle- our 17 year old, diabetic, heart and kidney failure cat, Princess- our 12 year old male orange tabby who is also diabetic and Taylor our 10 year old male orange tabby who is truly the laziest cat I have ever known! I have been married to my husband Danny since 2010 and am the proud mom of my sweet daughter Lily who is 3 years old.
I feel so lucky to have a job and family that I love so much!
