I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Sunny South Florida! I grew up with two older sisters and a dog named Sugar, who was my best friend and the reason I wanted to work with animals. Ever since I was little it has been my passion to help animals in any way possible and I hope to continue to grow and learn with the Dale Mabry Animal Hospital. I moved to Tallahassee in 2011 where I attended Florida State University. A few years later, I graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Hospitality Management and worked full-time in retail but realized it was time to make my dream a reality! After moving to Tampa in the summer of 2016 with my boyfriend Tyler, I enrolled in the Animal Behavior College to earn a certification as a Veterinary Assistant and I continue to volunteer at the Pet Resource Center since I can't take all the doggies home! I am excited to be a part of the DMAH team and continue to expand my knowledge and experience with animals, big and small alike!
I am originally from New York but raised in Tampa, Fl. I've been a vet tech now for about 3 years and loving every second about it. Being that my mom has been working with animals ever since I was little, it's become such a passion of mine to help every animal in need of help. On my days off I enjoy spending time with my 4 dogs Lola, King, Tank and Fluffy. I also enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, John, going to the beach, watching movies and spending time with family.
I am a native of Michigan who recently moved to Florida with my husband and 5 pets. (4 dogs Dota, Dixie, Gizmo, Loki and 1 cat Panzer) I use to work as a Shift Manager for Aldi but am extremely passionate about animals, so I sought out a job where I could interact with and learn more about them (since my husband say no more pets!). Now I am a kennel tech who helps take care of and love your fur-babies while you are busy or away! When I'm not busy caring for your fur-family, I'm at home caring for mine, dabbling in interior design and art, and cooking!
