I have always had a love for animals. I grew up horseback riding and when I was 8 years old my Aunt and I started foster parenting for the humane society. Fourteen years later we are still at it. My first job was a kennel attendant in high school. I live with my rescue pup who I have had since he was 6 months old. He is completely deaf and is trained by hand signals. I managed a doggy daycare for about 2 years and then decided that I wanted to end up back in a clinic. When I am not at work I am usually camping, hiking or exploring new places with my dog and friends.
