“I believe that we learn the true meaning of unconditional love from our pets.”
I was born and raised in Florida, but when I turned 18 I moved to Washington DC for a few years. It was there that I started my career in the pet industry. In 2006, I got a job at the Rockville Humane Society in Maryland. While working there, I developed a few technical skills, like drawing blood and giving vaccines. Working there inspired me to get a career diploma as a Veterinary Assistant in 2007.
I have worked at a few other camping facilities and came to Longwood Veterinary Clinic in 2009. I have been the Pet Care Team Manager since 2011. The team at LVC has become more like a second family to me and I truly enjoy coming to work every day. I am passionate about pet nutrition and flea control and enjoy the opportunity to educate clients and my team on these topics.
I have been married since 2013 and in 2016 we had a beautiful little boy. Currently, my family has a cat named Lola whom I adopted in 2004 from an abandoned litter of kittens.
