“I was born and raised in Pulaski County, graduating from Pulaski County High School in 2008 and New River Community College in 2012 with an Associate’s Degree in Arts and Sciences. I live locally with my husband, Don, with our four fur babies. I love to spend time with my family, do crafts, read, and go hiking.

I have always had a deep love of animals that I am so thankful to be able to put to good use. Throughout middle and high school, I concentrated on choir, art and theater, not really knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up, switching from wanting to be an opera singer to a forensic scientist...or even an opera singing forensic scientist! That’s a thing, right?

I’ve worked in various fields from childcare, to receptionist, to staffing, to payroll and administrative assistant and office management, but I really feel I have finally found a future here at Tipton Ridge Veterinary Medical Center as their practice manager. Working here has been the best experience, with continued opportunities to learn and grow with the practice. I have definitely found my home and work family here and could not imagine life without them!
