I have had a love for animals since I was little; seeing them as family not just pets. I have over 12 years’ experience in the veterinary field, starting off as a pet care assistant and working my way up to Surgery Technician and then to Practice Management. I am now working with safari as a Vet Tech. In that time I have already seen and experienced all kinds of great things. I have been happily married for 20 years and I have two children: a daughter who is 21 and a son who is 19. I have two dogs – Colt a 4 yr old American Staffordshire Terrier and Tucker a 9 yr old mastiff mix. I also have a 10 month old bearded dragon named Augustus (Gus) and two rescue cats named Cookie and Ducky. On my time off I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy helping fellow Veterinarian friends with foster care and local animal shelters with their medical needs and supplies. I look forward to continuing my career with Safari and exploring all the amazing education and experiences they have to offer.
