  1. How long have you been a part of the AMC team?

I became a part of the AMC team when I was 15. I started by volunteering then worked as a kennel care team member until after high school. I went to school to receive my degree as a licensed veterinary technician and came back to work at AMC. I have been here for 7 years with the exception of a small break.

  1. What drew you to this profession?

My love and passion for animals led me to a career where I can help and comfort them.

  1. What is your favorite part of your job?

It’s hard to choose my favorite thing as I have a few, but I love working with this group of people that are my second family, I love learning new skills, and I love being able to hold and meet so many different animals.

I have many hobbies including: swimming, scuba diving, traveling/exploring, playing with my nephew, binge watching “Friends”, baking, and chillin’ with my pets.

A perfect day would end with all of our appointments have a happy and fulfilling ending where every pet and their owner’s needs are met.
