My passion for animals started when I was very young, we always had a variety of animals around, including fish, pocket pets, feathered friends and of course our 4 legged companions. I started as a kennel technician when I was 15 with our long time veterinarian. Many years later and having the opportunity to work with many different veterinarians in numerous states, I became a veterinary technician. I have also had the privilege to work with exotics and wildlife for many years and currently help with sea turtle conservation.
I was born and raised in Pinellas County where I live with my husband and a very spoiled Pomeranian named Beezel. I started my career almost 17 years ago when I adopted my first Pom. I started in animal shelters then moved into private practice. I have a passion for what I do and enjoy helping our four legged patients as well as their owners
