I joined the team as receptionist in January of 2012. I am currently the Practice Manager. I enjoy all aspects of my job. My workdays are filled with the company of three talented veterinarians, and multiple co-workers. We all work well together and value our clients and their pets. I am blessed with two beautiful daughters and two son-laws. I also have three energetic grandchildren who fill my home with joy. In my spare time I like to write and spend time with close friends.
I joined the team in May of 2016. I am a 2016 Graduate of Parkland College (Champaign) Veterinary Technology program with an associates in Applied Science. I was born and raised in Bloomington, and then we moved to the Fairbury area and I graduated from Prairie Central.
There was never a time where we didn’t have animals in our house, from rabbits and hamsters to dogs and cats. I love the variety of patients that we see and the challenges that make my job so rewarding. The love of an animal always brightens my day! In my free time, I enjoy drawing, reading and walking outside. I love my barn cats and my Border Collie Mix, Daisy.

I am a proud dog mom to one handsome, but hairy, German Shepherd, and have adopted a black cat named Luther! I live on a farm in the country and have a special passion for large breed dogs and horses!
