Registered Technician

I have been working with animals for 10 years and love to help them everyday!  Being able to keep animals healthy and make them feel better is such a joy for me.  When I am not helping animals at work I am spending my days with my 3 cattle dogs and GSD, along with my husband and toddler son.  We are usually playing on our farm, enjoying some time on Lake Wylie, or watching the Carolina Panthers play!
