From a very young age, I knew that I wanted to be a part of the veterinary industry.  Growing up on a small farm just fueled my passion for animals.  We raised cattle and had a variety of animals growing up.  Throughout grade school, I raised and showed cattle, swine, rabbits, and goats for 4-H and FFA.  After graduation, I enrolled in college to pursue a degree in Animal Science.  I obtained my first job in a veterinary practice in 2000 and have only ever worked in a clinic since.  I have worked in several different states as well as many different species of animals.

​ Patient care is a high priority for me, which includes engaging with clients.  Our clients are a vital part of figuring out what will be the best route of care for their pets.  Obtaining a detailed history of how pets are doing at home greatly impacts what course of action will be taken to care for both wellness care and sick patients alike.  Our ultimate goal is to do the best for our patients with the means that the pet owners are able to provide.

​ Animals of all kinds have always captured a part of my heart.  Working in the veterinary industry is a large part of my life that I am extremely passionate about.  Since joining the Sulphur Animal Clinic team in 2020, I feel that I have become a part of a family rather than just an employee.  I look forward to coming to work each and every day knowing that I can make a difference regardless of how big or small it may be.  Working with the best team around is just a huge bonus!

​ I have several pets that I consider a part of my family.  Daisy is the name of my cat.  She joined my family about 6 years ago when her previous owner could no longer care for her.  She is an absolute joy to have in the house.  She loves to play with the dogs and also loves to curl up on any available lap that is willing to have her.  Ruger is the name of my Dachshund mix.  He has been a part of the family for the past 11 years.  I have had him since he was 6 weeks old and I could not imagine my household without him.  He has a personality far larger than himself.  He loves to play fetch, cuddle under blankets, and just occupy my space as long as I'll allow it.  Along with the pets that permanently reside in my house I also have fostered many other pets over the past 10 years.  I will always have a pet in my household because they improve the quality of my life and fill my heart.
