Registered Veterinary Technician
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends and my boyfriend. I love how everyone is so passionate about their jobs at Pawsh and truly loves animals. We are a great team and everyone works together to help each other and the patients out. I have been working at Pawsh for over 2 years and look forward to continuing to learn and grow with my Pawsh family!
I’ve worked my entire life in the Veterinary Industry, 25 years as a Vet Assistant (I loved assisting with pet dental procedures!) or in Reception. I’ve always loved animals. When I was in the 3rd grade, I brought home a stray Collie and begged my mother to allow us to keep him. After trying to find his owner first, she finally agreed we could give him a home! I remember always having multiple pets while growing up, they made our family complete. As a teenager, I fell in love with horses. A friend of mine had a stable and I remember spending all my spare time there, whenever possible. I learned how to ride, train and show horses in their arena, my favorite being an ex-race horse named Ms. Bar Roni. Most of the time we referred to her as Macaroni or Ms. Mac for short. I will always love horses, some of my fondest teenage memories are of training and showing them.
I enjoy working at Pawsh! I appreciate our pet care philosophies and love that we offer such great values to the pet community. I work with an amazing team of professionals who come to work every day committed to giving your pet the best, quality care possible. I’m proud to work here and look forward to giving you and your fur-babies a great customer experience the next time you visit! Hope to see you soon.
I decided to further my education and take an online certificate program through Animal Behavior Institute for Advanced Canine Training. I hope to one day be a dog trainer as well and use my knowledge and experience to help owners as much as I can!
My love for animals started early on, even when I was a little girl I always knew I wanted to work with them. My first-grade teacher, Mrs.Oates, had a big heart and such compassion for animals and I remember this leaving a big impact on me. To this day, I still admire and could spend hours talking with her about her passion for animals.
We have a full house at home! Two dogs, Raja and Abu, a cat, Jasmine, two birds Dantonio and Sweetie. I also have an adorable, furless, two-legged daughter Breslin. We’re a Disney, Michigan State, and animal loving family!!
I can’t wait to meet your dogs in play care and continue learning more about canine behavior! I hope to grow not only for myself but to live up to the Pawsh standard and be the best I can be!
At Pawsh, my goals are to facilitate and meet the needs of the clients and their pets. I also have pets of my own. There’s Ollie, but he has nicknames. We call him Ollie-Vert, or Vert-Vert. There’s also Bagel Dog because he’s a big Beagle.
A fun fact about me is that I’m a bonafide coffee addict! I used to be a barista and had a whole coffee themed wedding.
Nice to meet you, and I look forward to taking care of you and your pet!
