Owner

What made you want to work with animals?
My passion for pets began when I was very young. My first job was at Petsmart when I was 16. I started in the Specialty department and thoroughly learned about aquatics, small mammals, reptiles, and birds. At that time, a lot of people came to me with their pet problems, and if I didn’t know the answer I would ask someone else or look it up. I quickly discovered a passion for problem-solving peoples’ pet problems. This made me realize that being a veterinarian would be the right career choice for me.

What kind of pets do you have, or wish you could have? We have five dogs, three corgis, an Aussie mix, and a dachshund. We have several ducks and chickens as well
