Veterinary Assistant

Ever since I was a child, I have had a great love for animals. Starting with my first pet being a rabbit to now owning a small scale homestead with chickens, goats, a cow, and many smaller exotic animals. I love caring for all animals and often spend my time outside just admiring my farm and how far I’ve come from growing up in a small apartment.

I graduated from an agricultural high school where I studied natural resources and large animals. I was on the Chicken Judging team and also volunteered at a therapeutic riding center caring for the horses. I then spent two years in Maine where I worked at a sustainable greenhouse and had the opportunity to learn about certified organic food. I also got to make floral arrangements for local events and worked closely with the local Amish community.

After leaving Maine, I started my journey in the veterinary field working at a large fast pace emergency clinic where I realized working in the veterinary field is where I wanted to be. After learning so much in an emergency setting, I decided I wanted to become a part of a smaller clinic with a close-knit family feeling which led me to Manchester Veterinary Clinic.
