What I love most about what I do: This is a two part answer for me. When working with our pet owners, I love to educate them about anything they may not know about so they can be informed and therefore be the best pet owners to their beloved furry family members. I like to discuss anything from simple questions about intestinal worms to complicated and difficult anesthesia questions. When behind the scenes, I enjoy every aspect of nursing care. My favorite tasks, that I take very seriously, are anesthesia and dentistry.
Who I am when I'm not at Davis Animal Hospital: My family and I enjoy playing outdoors at the park, the beach, kayaking, swimming, running around splash pads (or sprinklers!), and relaxing in the sun. We love get-togethers with family and friends while watching the kids grow up. I enjoy gardening and, although I'm not very good at it, I really like carpentry.
You would be surprised to know that: Although I am vegetarian, I cook and provide meat to my family. My husband says I make the best ever marinated chicken and vegetable kabobs. I'll take his word for it!
Owned by: 4 cats, Misty, Emma, Cider, and my fat boy, Tiger, and a scary smart border collie, Zoey
What I love most about what I do: What I love most about what I do: I absolutely love learning new and interesting things about animals. Every day, it seems like I learn something that I did not know before. I love helping pets and seeing the impact that our job is making on them.
Who I am when I'm not at Davis Animal Hospital: I graduated from the University of West Florida in May 2015 with a Psychology degree.
