I am a native to Asheville, but for the past 6 years I have been living in Wilmington, NC. I received my degree in Marine Biology from UNC Wilmington, but after I finished school it was difficult finding a job in my field. I decided that I would apply to work at a veterinary hospital in Wilmington and shortly after applying got a position as a veterinary assistant at a hospital that I loved. After working for 3 years at that hospital I decided that I wanted to expand my knowledge in the field and become equipped to handle things like surgeries, dentals, and emergency cases. I decided to apply to AB Tech’s veterinary medical technology program and was very excited to have been accepted into their program in the Fall of 2015. I am so pleased to be part of the REACH staff and I am excited for the opportunity to continue learning from my co-workers and caring for our clients and their pets.


In my spare time I like to go for hikes with my husband, play around in my garden, and snuggle with my 2 cats, Elsie and Curtis.
