I moved to Colorado in 1998, I have 1 daughter (and waiting on grandkids) I have a Blue & Gold Macaw, and 1 cat. I grew up in the country having horses, pigs, lambs, rabbits, pet chickens, dogs, cats, and reptiles. I was involved with 4-H for 9 years 4 of those years as a leader. I decided to go back to college in my 40’s to be more involved in the veterinary field where it is a passion of mine to be able to work with animals and their owners. I also have a operations management side, where I managed for more than 16 years. My hobbies include but not limited to, spending time with my pets, teaching my macaw how to talk and do tricks. photography, cooking, hiking, being out in nature, and trying new places and new adventures, you can always find me picking up a book to learn something new. It is my mission everyday to pay it forward 3 times a day, be grateful for 10 things a day, and to provide a positive experience for both the client and the patient with every appointment.
