I am a graduate of the Vet Tech Institute of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have been working in a small animal practice since 2010. I wanted to become a technician because I not only love animals but have a passion for educating pet owners on how to provide the best care for their pets. I have two dogs, three cats as well as two bearded dragons, fish and bullfrogs! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband Tyler, and sons Spencer & Riley. My ideal weekend involves any outdoor activity such as fishing, kayaking and camping. I live by the mantra: Treat people how you’d want to be treated. Empathy is key in your career and home life!
