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.


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 three dogs: a miniature dachshund, Dixie Petunia, an English Mastiff, Jorie Ambrosia, and a Mastiff Mix, Tubbs Karmichael. I also have two cats: Kokopelli (Pelli) and French Fry (Frennie) both of them were rescued as strays my husband brought home 😉 Besides spending time with my animals, I enjoy motorcycling with my husband, Spencer, helping out at our family pizza shop in Hagerstown, baking and making crafts.


From the time I was small, I have loved all animals, but dogs have always been my biggest love. My Feist, Colt, adds such joy to my life. He is the happiest pup I have ever known! But don’t worry, I happily share my home with three kitties, Nubby, Figaro, and Mouse Key too! I adore my little stone house in Mount Airy and enjoy spending my free time 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!”


Since I was a little girl, I have loved and been amazed by all creatures under the sun and sea. I have always wanted to work with animals, but could never decide on a single career- there were too many possibilities! My dream was and still is, to open a sanctuary for abused domestic and farm animals. While trying to find the resources and learn what it means to have an animal sanctuary, I tried my hand at many career prospects including retail, restaurants, and even the funeral industry. None of them ever felt like a good fit.

At the beginning of 2017, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to start at Kingsbrook as a Client Service Representative and I could not imagine being anywhere else! I love that I get to work with such a wonderful group of skilled, compassionate people and charming furry friends!

I currently live in downtown Frederick with my husband Shane and our herd of cats, Maxwell Stormborn, Theodore aka “Chief” and Luna-Moon. In my free time I like to read a variety of books, crochet many projects at the same time and find new, beautiful places to go hiking.
