Animals have been a part of my life since the day I was born. We always had dogs and cats growing up. My daughter once described me as the “animal Whisperer” because many of their friends had pets that were not particularly fond of people but they always came right up to me! I have also spent a lot of time watching dogs, cats, cows, and horses for my friends. They would take off on vacations and I would stay at their home and care for their pets.
I have a teaching degree and taught middle school math for several years but have recently decided to do the things that I enjoy the most! Spending time with animals always puts a smile on my face ….and sometimes their’s! I currently have a Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix named Chloe. She is 6 and 1/2 years old and is my little buddy. She has traveled all over the country with me and is always by my side or on my lap! I also have a quilting business that keeps me busy, four grown daughters and four, soon-to-be five, grandchildren that make my life complete.
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.
Lynn has been a lifelong advocate for animals. She currently has an adopted German Shepherd mix and fosters rabbits for HRS Chicago. She was also a dog walker/mentor at Anderson Animal Shelter for many years. Lynn takes great pride in going above and beyond for her clients and their pets!
