Bio coming soon!
I took a Vet Tech Course at the College of DuPage 5 years ago. I worked for Bartlett Animal Hospital for 5 months as a vet assistant and receptionist. I then worked at Animal House Vet Clinic for 3-1/2 years as a receptionist. I have been working at Wild Things because I love walking and dogs, so I get to put two of my favorite things together! I have had a succession of dogs and cats in my life since I was a toddler, but currently have 2 cats at home.
I have spent my entire life loving, and living with animals! I have never lived in a home with less than two pets at any given time, but no more than 5. Currently we have two feral kitten rescues, Chainsaw and Razey.
Before moving out to the tri-cities area, I worked at an animal hospital on the northwest side of Chicago. While there I learned a lot about how to care for special needs pets, as well as be a better pet parents to my own fur babies. After working at the animal hospital, I became a futures trading broker, and it was very exciting job!
While working as a broker, my husband and I welcomed twins into our family and decided at that time, me working as a broker no longer fit into our lives. Once our twins were six months old I decided to pursue my lifelong passion of animal care, which led me to Wild Things.
I look forward to meeting your pets, and caring for them on the weekends when you can’t be home with them. Thank you for trusting me with your furry, and feathered, family members, I promise to give them tons of love and attention!
