As a native central Oregonian, my love for animals started at an early age. Even as a child, I always seemed to be taking in neighborhood stray animals and doctoring my own pets. In 2015, I decided it was time to pursue a dream. After selling my small business, I began working as an assistant at a veterinary clinic in Bend. The following summer, I joined Riverside Animal Hospital where I found the drive and support to make this a career. In the fall of 2017, I enrolled in a program to become licensed technician. In my free time, I love being outside camping and fishing with my two small boys, German Shepherd, Boxer and 3 Welsh Corgis!
