Tell Us About Your Pet Family:
My cats’ names are Gulliver, Raisin and Elsa. Elsa and Raisin are domestic short hairs and Gulliver is a domestic long hair. My cats love to birdwatch, groom, and play with each other. Elsa loves to play fetch.
My Favorite Story About A Pet:
One of my favorite memories about my pets is when I adopted Elsa. I went to a cat rescue and she came right up to me, curled in my lap, and started purring. That was it for me – I brought her home the next day!
When I’m Not at Cherished Companions, You’ll Find Me…
Hiking, reading, or spending time with my friends and family!

I have always been drawn to animals from a very young age. In high school, the only thing I ever got in trouble for was bringing home stray cats. Helping animals and trying to improve their lives brings me so much joy. They made such an impact on our lives, so I strive to do the same for them.
My Role at Cherished Companions:
I work as a veterinary technician at Cherished Companions. This means I am lucky enough to greet you and your furry friend at the door, listen to any questions or concerns you may have, communicate that to the doctor, and assist the doctor with your pet’s care and treatment.
Greatest Thing About Working with Animals:
Of course, it’s always fun to see all of the cute animals that come in every day. What I enjoy the most though is seeing an unwell pet get better!
Favorite Compliment from a Customer:
My favorite compliment so far was after working with a sick pet, an owner told me she appreciate my patience, care, and compassion towards both her and her pet.
