Even after numerous years in the Veterinary field, I still look forward to going to work, interacting with our patients and clients, and working cooperatively with a great team that I consider family.
I graduated from Dental Hygienist school and after a few years, I decided to return to school to pursue my first love: Veterinary Medicine. My mom predicted that I would become a veterinarian and was never surprised at what critters supposedly followed me home. My pets not only included dogs, cats, and birds…but also a menagerie of snakes, mice, guinea pigs, hamsters, barn owls, horny toads, turtles, and more.
After graduating from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987, I set my sites on opening my own veterinary hospital. Thus, in 1992, Everett Veterinary Hospital & Boarding House was opened. However, after 25 years, I was not ready to retire after selling my practice in 2017. I love continuing my passion and being an employee with East/West Ridge Animal Hospital.
My spare time is spent with my Labradoodle (Morgan), hiking, traveling, and kayaking. My passions also include photography and writing.
I know that I am truly blessed to be in a profession where I am able to give and yet get back so much in return.
