As I grew up, our family was known as the local zoo. We had every critter off the street that you can think of. My mother never turned away a hurt or nursing baby, and I followed in her footsteps. I knew to be happy in my career, I needed to help and care for animals. During my time in Humboldt I was able to do Wildlife rescue after an oil spill and I KNEW this is my calling.
I have worked at the Animal Clinic since Aug. 1999. I started as a kennel technician, then moved to reception, then Veterinary assistant and now my current position as Office Manager. I enjoy knowing that when I come to work, I can possibly make a difference in an animals life and possibly ease the concern of their owner. We have a great, fabulous mixture of staff that I call my “work family”.
I bought a house a few years back and live there with my 2 rescue dogs, Tika and Dede, and 6 (over a span of 15 years) of my bottle fed baby kittens, who are now cats; Bunny Boy, Mimi, Slim Jim, Poppy, Possum and Stewie! I love my crazy fuzzy crew and would never trade them for anything!
