Meet Our Veterinary Staff
I graduated from Westwood College with a diploma in Medical Assisting and was hired shortly after at Lansing Animal Hospital in August of 2009. I was out for 10 months after having my daughter Olivia and came back to work with the clinic again. When I’m not working I love spending time with my daughter and furry babies: a 7-year-old Shepherd mix named Goshe and 5-month-old Chihuahua named Bambi. I also enjoy spending quality time with the rest of my family and friends.

I started at a local animal shelter as a kennel attendant and worked my way up to lab technician and vet tech. I wouldn't trade this job for anything in the world. I have a pitbull named Rose and 2 cats Capone (tuxedo) and Puma (all gray). In my spare time I enjoy cuddling with my animals, reading, traveling, and going to museums.
