Afterhours & Sameday, Extended Travel, Deceased Pet Pick-Up
I developed a love of animals and science at a young age and knew that veterinary medicine was the perfect career choice. I obtained my bachelor's degree at the University of California, Davis. While there, I stayed busy volunteering at local veterinary clinics, working with a parrot outreach group, and participating in research at a feline nutrition center. During this time, I also enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students and substitute teaching for K-12. After some post graduate education, Washington State became my home, and I soon obtained my Veterinary degree from Washington State University. I have worked in Fresno since graduation in both a day practice and an emergency setting.
While I loved healthy puppy, kitten, and even reptile visits, I soon realized that sometimes our job also necessitates relieving suffering and helping pets to pass peacefully. To be able to further experience and support the bond between humans and their pets has been an honor that I am truly grateful for. I believe that euthanasia in our pet’s home is a peaceful, loving, and more comfortable way to help them pass, surrounded by the people they love. Family is so important and our pets make up such a special role in our lives.
My husband and I have 3 children, and a household full of fuzzies, fins, fangs, and feathers. In my free time, I enjoy reading, jogging, and catching up on great television series.
