Practice Manager

I have been in the veterinary field since 1997. I began as a kennel technician and have worked various jobs from there to being a practice manager at a corporate veterinary hospital and everything in between but always in the veterinary field. I have even done some substitute teaching for a veterinary assistant program. I am also a licensed veterinary technician in the state of Texas. I love being part of this business, and I am excited to be working with my long time colleague, Dr. Zoo. Currently, at her hospital, I am the front desk/office manager so look for me when you check in the front door. I look forward to meeting you and making you part of our family
