I moved from northeast Ohio to join the LVC team in November 2014. I am a certified veterinary technician and earned my degree at Stautzenberger College in Brecksville, Ohio in December 2013. I also have a bachelor’s degree in Captive Wildlife Care and Education which I earned at Unity College in Maine in May 2011. I have always been passionate about animals. I am one of the fear free certified nurses at LVC. I love our fear free approach to veterinary care; it has greatly decreased stress for both patients and clients! I am the proud pet parent of a dog (Allie Mae) and three cats (Loki, Spooky, and Finley). Allie is a black and tan coonhound with limitless energy, who loves everyone. Loki is a big, loveable Maine Coon. Spooky is a white domestic shorthair who was born deaf, but that doesn’t slow her down. Finley is an orange tabby who is a total lovebug, seriously the sweetest cat ever. Outside of work I enjoy reading, going to movies, riding horses, attending renaissance fairs, listening to music, karaoke, ghost hunting (I even give tours in October), traveling, and hanging out with friends and family.
