She grew up in rural Illinois and has lived and practiced in Idaho for 20 years. She has a special love for ferrets but enjoys helping dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and all the other small, furry pets. She is a member of the Association of Exotic Mammal Vets, the Association of Avian Vets, ARAV, and the American Ferret Association.
Her family is currently owned by two crazy cats and two sweet ferrets. She is also especially fond of both vintage music and vintage-style dancing.
