Since then she has worked at several general practices and specialty practices. She currently has 3 cats at home: “Toulouse” is her main man whom she adopted from her Veterinary Technician school program, and it literally was love at first meow! “Larue” is her “middle child” who was found as a kitten on the streets, and “Cosette” is her fluffy little girl her mom found in her backyard and she was purrfect! She loves to spend time with her husband and two children. Outside of her love for animals, she also enjoys art and movies, all things food and when the opportunity arises, traveling the world!
