Educational Background: AAS in Veterinary Technology at SUNY Ulster

Number of Family Animal Companions: 3

Name(s) and Breed(s): "Odie" a lab/retriever mix; "Wyatt a.k.a Piglet" a black lab mix, and "Zoey" a pitbull/boxer mix

Hobbies I enjoy: Softball, watching football go GIANTS!! and Notre Dame!!!, love playing in the yard with all the dogs and most of all spending time with my daughter Emma.

Special things I have done with animals: I used to work at the Town of Newburgh Animal Control and Shelter where I enjoyed helping all the homeless animals find homes and also I got to nurse sick animals back to health. There I furthered my love for animals in helping with all kinds of animals in different situations by either helping raising week old kittens, fostering puppies at home or finding homes for our senior pets. All my dogs are from the Town of Newburgh Shelter where I rescued them and have given them a happy and loving home.

"I love to be a part of the Otterkill Animal Hospital healthcare team because": The hospital healthcare team is a great group to work with. We are more like lifelong friends then co-workers and we have a lot of fun everyday together helping animals. Everyone here also loves animals and cares above and beyond for all our patients.
