I was actually born in Decatur, Illinois, but grew up my whole life in Oklahoma, where I was raised a Sooner fan attending every home football game! It was not until this awesome job, where I get the opportunity to care for your kiddos, that I moved back to my roots- boyfriend and fur babies in tow. I always knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. I only ever waivered twice: once when I tore my ACL and I thought PT would be fun, and once when “Legally Blonde” came out and going to Harvard sounded easy.
After several years of caring for stuffed animals, I fulfilled a life-long dream of being a true Sooner and went to the University of Oklahoma. After four years, however, I had to go up state to “the other school”. It was at Oklahoma State University that I received my doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.
Now I am happy to say that I live here in Pekin. My boyfriend and I have a 7-year-old lab/shepherd mix named Abby and a 15-year-old Schipperke named Chauncey. In my spare time, I love being with family, catching up on movies and Disney, and just being outside. I am a kid at heart, and if you get me started on Disney or Harry Potter I could talk to you all day! I look forward to getting to know you and your fur kids and helping you all in the best way I can! See you soon!
