I joined our staff in February 2016 after my husband, 2 cats (Monkey and Inky) and I moved to Florida in April 2015. I retired from an animal hospital in Ohio after 41 years in the field, and am a registered veterinary technician. After moving to Florida, my family got a Labrador puppy named Royal. I wanted to continue working part time because veterinary medicine is part of my life and passion.
