Ever since childhood I have been fascinated with biology/natural sciences. I can’t remember a time when I was not interested in caring for animals. I have worked in multiple animal shelters, a zoo and have been active in Wildlife Rehabilitation with North Country Wildcare for over 10 years.
I started working as a receptionist here at Greenfield Animal Hospital when we first opened in 2011. My favorite part of my job is getting to know our patients and clients better and help them make sense of their medical options. And of course getting to greet and love on each and every patient! And at some point in my career, I would like to pursue a degree as a Veterinary Technician.
I’d be hard pressed to find an animal I don’t like, but if I had to choose, some favorites I’d say you can’t get much cuter than a tortoise, and I’ve been known to go a bit crazy over frogs, bats, tigers, crows, hedgehogs and baby pandas. I would love to go on vacation to see baby sea turtles hatching sometime.
My pets at home are Payton, an 18 year old Maine Coon; Pixie, a 6 year old cat; and Cooper, a 4 year old Aussie Mix. When not spending time driving my children to their many activities, I enjoy reading, gardening, horror movies, planning trips to Disney and playing card & board games.
