Special Interests & Why I Love What I Do

My specific interests include emergency medicine, dentistry, which I miss since we don't see much of it in specialty practice, and the business side of veterinary medicine.

I love working at the referral center because each day presents a new challenge and it's fast paced work - never a dull moment. I also appreciate the opportunity to constantly learn and grow. And, to work somewhere where you respect and admire the people you work with because of their passion and how much they care, there's nothing better than that. I am so proud to call the Fox Valley Animal Referral Center my "work home"!

Personal

I am fortunate enough to share my home with two four-legged children named "Augustus" and "Klaus". I enjoy outdoor activities such as walking, swimming and riding motorcycle. I like traveling the US and trying new food. I also enjoy music and play the guitar and mandolin.

As my coworkers will confirm, I have a passion for making people laugh. I believe that there is nothing more rewarding than making someone happy and seeing them smile, which is why I love humor.
