I am proud to say that I am one of the "lucky ones" who actually gets excited to go to work every day! I have loved what I do since I was very young and I could not imagine doing anything else. My start in veterinary medicine was inherited from family. My mother has worked for the Sarasota County Animal Services since I was 3 months old and when most children spent their summers at camp or running through sprinklers, I was learning how to care for stray and neglected animals as a volunteer at her shelter. My first job was at a veterinary clinic in Sarasota at the age of 15 taking care of boarding animals. It was there that I was introduced to veterinary medicine. It was not long before my passion was ignited and I was wanting to learn all that I could about veterinary medicine. When I was 18, I started working as a technician at an Emergency Veterinary Clinic in Sarasota.
You can also find me from time to time at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Port Charlotte sharpening my skills. I am the mother of 3 beautiful children, Eriq, Evan, and Alexa. They keep me busy with sports and school functions when I am not working. I am studying for my Bachelors in Accounting from the University of South Florida. When I am finished there, I intend to become a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager. I have 3 of the cutest dogs (you have to believe me, I'm not biased). Their names are Denver, an Austrailian Shepherd, Fiona, a French Bulldog, and Rosie, a French Bulldog Shih-Tzu Mix (aka a "Bullshit").
