A true northerner from birth I was raised in the Yukon Territory and educated at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. I have shared a home here in the Interior with my husband, Fred and several pets over the past thirty-three years. I have worked at Mt.McKinley Animal Hospital for thirty-two of those years. I enjoy the northern lifestyle and consider Fairbanks my home. Fred and I currently share our home with our Pembroke Welsh Corgi, “Rylee.”
Always raised with pets I spent my first twenty plus years in the Yukon Territory and know what it is like without the services of a veterinarian. I graduated from the University of Alaska with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. Over the years I have experienced and seen many positive changes in the Fairbanks area as well as the veterinary profession. Working at Mt.McKinley Animal Hospital fulfills my need to make a living in a place I love and allows me to be part of a caring and knowledgeable professional team. People who care for pets are wonderful to work with.
Hi there, I'm originally from southeast Iowa. My husband, three dogs and I drove up to Alaska from Alabama/Georgia in May 2016. I worked at an animal shelter for 2 years in Georgia before moving up here and I hope to always work with animals in some way. We adopted a cat since being in Alaska and our little family feels very complete. Our dogs are Aaron~Murray (pitbull), Halo (pitbull, vizsla, american bulldog), Amaretto (german shepard, basset hound), and our cat is Abraham (rag doll mix). We have loved being in Alaska, and anything we can do outside with our fur babies is what makes us happy.
