She has a little funny farm located outside of Millet with many different breeds of animals including but not limited to 6 dogs and 10 cats, most of which have been rescued over the years. She used to be a carpenter before changing fields to chase her passion for helping animals. She has now been working in the veterinary field as a veterinary technical assistant for almost 5 years but has worked with animals and rescues since she was a young girl. With the farm she does not have much extra time for hobbies but when she can she loves to go camping and taking hikes and adventures with her family and friends. She dreams to one day open her own animal rescue that will help animals of all shapes and sizes.

I came from working at a couple other clinics in Alberta and am now with Montrose Pet Clinic where I am learning lots and improving my skills while working along side a lovely staff. Aside from the animal work life I also have animals of my own which includes dogs, horses, a cat and a reptile in which I carry equal interest in all and they keep me busy. on my free time you can find me taking my dogs to the lake, riding my horses or going on a trip to the mountains.
