Why I come to work:
I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be able to contribute to the health and wellness of cherished pets, while building trust and lasting relationships with my clients. The ability to merge my passion for animals with the fulfillment derived from connecting with pet parents has made my job truly rewarding. It’s a privilege to be part of the lives of these pets and the families who hold them dear.

What I would be if I wasn’t a veterinarian:
A barista

Outside of work:
I am often busy with my kids and family, but I do try to make time for Lagree classes, exploring the outdoors, and trying out local coffee shops.
