I grew up in eastern Iowa. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2003 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Zoology. I graduated from the DMACC Veterinary Technology Program and became a veterinary technician in 2006. I've always had interest in the medical field and a love for animals, and found a career as a veterinary technician the perfect combination. I have been at my current job since 2007 where I work with dogs and cats. I am skilled with working with our more difficult feline patients. I now live in central Iowa with my husband, 4 sons and 6 cats. In my spare time I enjoy crafting, home improvement projects, family time with my boys, and I love to vacation at the beach.
