Emergency and Critical Care
3. How many pets do you have and

2 Cats - Girasol and Friskie
4. What is your most memorable veterinary practice
experience?
My most memorable experience is not only obtaining my
Veterinary Technician Specialty in Emergency and Critical Care,
but also mentoring others to achieve their specialty and seeing
the look on their faces when their dreams come true.
5. Why did you get involved in PVMA?
As a Veterinary Technician, I know all too well what we are
capable of. I know that my patients need me and that the field
is in desperate need of committed technicians. I also know
that as technicians, we need some positive change in the
field nationwide, to improve our profession. I want to help
technicians in our state get the recognition we deserve, see the
changes we desire and to continue to advance our profession
for ourselves and our patients.

VICE PRESIDENT

2. What is your area of practice?
Managing DVM for General Practice
3. How many pets do you have and what are their
names?
Four Cats: Bear, Jake & Elwood (The Blues kitties), and Puff
(The Stay Puft Marshmallow kitty)
4. What is your most memorable veterinary practice
experience?
I had trouble answering this question, not because I didn't
have memorable moments, but because I have so many.
There are so many lives that I've helped support and make
better; the many pets and owners I've connected with;
all of the wonderful people I've worked with; those who
have mentored me and others who I've been privileged to
mentor; and lots of wagging tails.
5. Why did you get involved in PVMA?
I made a promise to one of my mentors, Dr. George Melillo,
to be more involved. I was talking to him about a lack
of women in positions of influence, and he urged me to
become one of those women. He made it so all the vets in
our practice had their PVMA memberships paid for, and I
took part in the second year of the Power of 10. It was such
a great experience for me and made me want to give back
to the organization.
