I have been working in the animal field since I was 17 years old. I grew up loving animals (especially dogs and cats) and knew that I wanted to work with them as a career. Growing up, I came from a family that always had at least one cat in the house. I have also owned a mixed breed dog in the past. I hold a special place in my heart for rescues and geriatric pets.
I graduated from Penn Foster College with an Associate Degree in Animal Science in 2010. In the beginning of 2011, I became a Registered Veterinary Technician in the state of Maryland. I have previously worked as a kennel attendant/receptionist, grooming assistant and veterinary assistant before becoming registered.
I started working at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital in July 2013. I love how the doctors and staff at KAH truly care about the animals and want what is best for them and their owners. Every patient visit my goal is to treat all pets as if they were my own, and to provide the best patient and pet parent care possible. I feel fortunate to be part of the team and I am lucky enough to call my coworkers my friends. I am continuing to learn from everyone here daily, and I want to strive to be the best technician that I can be.
I currently live in Frederick, MD with my senior rescue cat, Beemer.
