It never really mattered to me if animals had two or four legs, feathers or fur.  I grew up with animals from all walks of life.  I previously had a career in radio, but when life brought me back to Illinois, and the opportunity to work at an animal hospital came up, I dove right in.  It was a perfect match.  I was able to work with other people, who like me, loved animals and in turn I was able to help other pet parents.

My home would not be complete without my pack of dogs. My pack consists of Arlo, a beagle mix, and two beagles Fannie and Olive. Together, they tend to rule the household.  I spend my time away from work reading, making jewelry, going on road trips, enjoying the outdoors, and cooking up tasty treats in the kitchen. Peace, love, and rock on.
