I graduated from Platt College in 2015 with an Associates of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. I then received my RVT license in 2017. My passion for horses drove me to work in the veterinary field. Through school I completed externships in equine medicine, small animal medicine, and spay/neuter surgery. I quickly learned that I really enjoyed the high volume pace of spay/neuter. As a result of my experiences in school, I spent 5 years working for the Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles. I also worked on Spay 4 LA's mobile clinic for two years.

During this time I realized how much I enjoy learning and most importantly how much I enjoy teaching others. I also knew I wanted to do more to assist rescue animals that needed help when I foster failed two special needs kittens.

The loss of my beloved Boxer, Teddy, gave me a new perspective on life and rescue work. Working for Paws For Life K9 Rescue and volunteering with Angel City Pit Bulls has allowed me to care for and work alongside great people and amazing animals. I am now able to work with the dogs, cats, and humans that need the most support and tender loving care. I can think of no greater honor in the name of Teddy.
