I am a graduate of the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. I then graduated from Parkland College with an Associate in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology. I am currently a graduate student, getting my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy with a Specialization in Child and Adolescent Family Therapy. I am dedicated to helping in any way I can. I have been a CVT for 15 years, working in an ER for 11 of those years. It was an exciting experience and I learned so much about veterinary medicine. Since my hospital is a teaching hospital I had many opportunities to help both veterinarian interns and veterinary technician students learn as we helped care for our patients. I have a passion for biology and the life sciences. I enjoy showing students how to look at their studies in a new way, helping them make more sense of what they are learning. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, dancing, playing with my daughter, and spoiling my 4 cats. I look forward to working with you.
