Professional Interests/Associations

Have been a Veterinary Technician for 30 years. Have worked in mostly small and exotic animal clinics, but did some mixed practice (large and small animal) technician work. Was an office manager at a small animal clinic before becoming a veterinary technician educator. Am an active member of CACVT.

Personal Interests

I am a farmer at heart. I have a love for all domesticated birds such as chickens, ducks, geese and more. I have many of these birds and love raising them for the eggs they provide to my family and others. I also have a few goats that we raise for dairy purposes. I love to garden (mostly vegetables) in the summer and must grow plants inside to get me through the long winter months when I can't get out and work in the soil.
