I was born in Tucson, AZ and moved around quite a lot as a child because my father was in the Air Force. I have lived in 7 states and 2 countries. I moved to Colorado during the summer of 2017 and couldn’t be happier here!

I have a lifelong passion for animals passed on from my grandmother and mother, both of whom have been involved with several pet charities and rescues (not to mention all the family pets we had growing up!). I started working in the veterinary field 15 years ago. I spent some time working as an animal behaviorist and have even had some luck teaching my 9-year-old cat some tricks (he can shake, high-five, and beg, among other things). I find working with animals and the people that love them to be a truly rewarding experience and I look forward to it every day!

I live here in Parker with my husband, our dog Mac, and our cat Mister D. Outside of my work I enjoy hiking in the mountains, road trips to visit our Arizona family, and just relaxing with the critters while watching movies or reading a good book. I look forward to meeting you and your pets here at VCPI!
