Home •Who We Are•Team• Client Care Specialists
I have worked in the veterinary field since 1999. My love for helping animals brought me to this profession.
I joined Kingsbrook Animal Hospital in January 2007. I am grateful to be a part of such a great staff here at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital. Everyone here is very caring and knowledgeable!
I currently own a Pit Bull Terrier, Wyatt & an American Bulldog, Sugar. I have always enjoyed working with animals and I love being able to provide great care to our patients and help educate our clients.
After working in the telecommunications industry for 33 years, I had the awesome opportunity to join the Kingsbrook team as a client service specialist in July 2014. Everyday working here is a learning experience! As a client for many years, I got to know the team here very well as they cared for my 6 dogs and 1 cat. I have such great respect for the Kingsbrook team and the compassionate care they provide.
I have always had a huge love for all animals. As a kid, I was always bringing home every stray in the neighborhood, I drove my parents crazy. Things haven’t changed much over the years, all of my animals today were either stray or rescued from local shelters.
In my spare time I volunteer for Wags for Hope. My dog Pogo and I provide pet therapy for the patients and staff at Frederick Memorial Hospital and local nursing homes. I also enjoy hiking and just hanging out at home with my boyfriend Buddy and all our 4 legged kids.
My love for animals started young and only grew as I got older. It began with horses and stemmed from there into a general curiosity of all animals. I always knew I would end up working with animals in some capacity and was determined to make it a career. After graduating high school, I began a veterinary assistant program with Hagerstown Community College and volunteering at the local humane society. Shortly thereafter, I got a job in a small animal practice in Hagerstown, MD. After graduating from Shippensburg University in the Spring of 2015, I began my search for a change of pace. I knew there was something missing from the other places I've worked and I found that at Kingsbrook. I was truly fortunate to join the team in May 2015.
In my spare time, I enjoy time at home with my fuzzy critters. We have two dogs: a miniature dachshund, Dixie Petunia, and an English Mastiff, Chloe. Dixie's favorite pastime is chasing me on the four wheeler and licking everything. Chloe loves taking trips to Lowe's with her daddy and being as graceful as only Mastiff's can be. In July 2015, I rescued a kitten despite being allergic to cats for a long time. He suffered a severe injury to his right rear foot which we believe was hit by a car at only 4 weeks old.
He was quickly adopted by my dogs so now we have a rambunctious cat named, Pelli. Besides spending time with my animals, I make and sell crafts and volunteer with Wags For Hope where Chloe and I visit local nursing homes.
From the time I was small, I have loved all animals, but dogs have always been my biggest love. Don't worry, I happily share my home with three cats, too! I adore my little stone house in Mount Airy, MD and enjoy spending my free time with my Rottweiler, Calypso, gardening, and camping. If the weather disagrees, I am happy with a good book.
After 30 years in retail management I switched gears in 2011 to join a specialty veterinarian's office. In April of 2016, the opportunity to join Kingsbrook Animal Hospital allowed me to complete my journey to the best practice anywhere. Everyone cares about each and every animal that comes through our doors, and I am proud that we are "the best!"
Thank you to Dr Cook, Morgan, Katie, and everyone who took such amazing care of our Ash last week. We were totally at ease leaving her in their care. I'm thrilled we moved both our pets to Kingsbrook, and love knowing they'll always be in great hands.
