I’m a certified veterinary technician who loves working with domestics and exotics. I grew up on a horse farm in Jupiter. I’ve been caring for animals since childhood. I’ve worked at AECPC since it’s inception as head technician. I love all animals, I just can’t pick a favorite. My hobbies are horseback riding, paddle board yoga and interior design. My dream is to create a rescue for retired show horses to live out their days with love and comfort.
I grew up on a bird farm in Loxahatchee, Florida. I enjoy working with birds and exotic’s because it allows me to continuously learn about new species. I enjoy spending my time outside of the clinic with my three year old daughter and family.
