WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO: After several years in the veterinary field it was evident to me there was a disconnect between the time of diagnosis to when  "it’s time to make the decision”. I knew I wanted to bridge that gap and be a supportive voice for pet parents during the most difficult time with their pets. I’ve heard all too many times in practice people say, “I waited too long”, or “I’ll never have another pet”.  I take great pride in counseling pet parents during this difficult time to ensure that these last days, weeks or months are kept enjoyable and pain free for all involved in the pet’s life.

BEST WAY TO START THE DAY: Good pot of coffee, puppy snuggles and the Golden Girls reruns.
