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!
What I love most about what I do: I love the medicine and client education! The medical field is always growing so you're always learning something new. It's rewarding for me to be able to help relay some of that information and help people grow in their relationship with their pets.
Who I am when I'm not at Davis Animal Hospital: I'm a beach bum, music lover, and Pinterest addict. My boyfriend Dillon and I love going to concerts and shows.
You would be surprised to know that: I love to play the ukulele!
