I’ve always been an animal person! Being able to work with all different kinds of animals has led me to Coyne, but the amazing staff has made it feel like home. Since starting, I’ve changed my career path and am now pursuing a degree as a Veterinary Technician.

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?
I would love to own a big cat. Lions and tigers, but definitely no bears for me.
Do you currently have any pets? What are their names and what is your favorite thing about them? 
I have a dog named Juniper and a fish named Dumbo. They’re my best friends! June is a crazy ball of energy all the time and really keeps me on my toes. Dumbo is so interactive and loves to swim into peoples’ hands for attention. Having them makes for the best combo of craziness and peace.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I like to be outside a lot! I love kayaking and hiking with my family. I also spend a lot of time training my dog Juniper at the parks near my house.
