Greetings from the Staff
"I've always had a keen interest in animals and knew from an early age I wanted to work with them. I love the variety of working in an animal hospital where there's always something interesting happening. I am constantly learning new things.
When I'm home, I enjoy my four fat & easily excited rats."
