Born and raised in Texas till I was eleven, my family and I moved to Lakeland and I’ve been here and loved it even since. I came into the clinic in 2006 without any experience working with animals but a deep love and passion for caring for them, something that I been able to develop and grow. Ensuring that every animal that coming into the clinic to board in our kennels or staying in the hospital is comfortable and cared for as if they are our own is my biggest priority, and being in such a positive and supportive work environment makes it that much easier. At home I have four cats and a miniature schnauzer named Sugar that are my fur babies, as caring for all of the stray cats in my neighborhood. Currently I am also attending college to complete by Associates Degree, with plans to pursue my Bachelors at a university. I am honored to work at this clinic alongside some the most compassionate and dedicated people I’ve known.
