Why do I do what I do? I love it when I get to help a patient and then they come back and are happy to see me. I love the feeling of knowing I made them feel loved, even when they were very sick and having their worst day. I believe that every patient deserves to feel like they are loved, whether they are at home or hospitalized.
Although marine biology was my first career choice, I became a licensed Veterinary Technician in California in 1998. After my family and I moved to Klamath in 2008, I then challenged the Oregon Veterinary Technician Medical Boards and am now licensed in the state of Oregon. I also am a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. I chose Everett Veterinary Hospital & Boarding House, as I love working with a variety of species and it seems to be the perfect fit. I especially enjoy working with birds and exotics and am dedicated to their nutritional and husbandry needs for their preventive care. My job description involves a little bit of everything so you may find me anywhere within the facility from exam rooms to surgery to lab to prep or my favorite place being X-ray and then back again.
Although my son and husband come first in my life, I eagerly get involved with numerous “pet projects.” In addition to wildlife care, I am treasurer of Badger Run and am busy with many fund raisers for needy animals and participating in community events. I am definitely a type A person that stays active.
My critter filled house includes four dogs, two cats, a raccoon and various short term wildlife visitors.
