I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. My plans were to go to vet school but changed my mind and became a licensed veterinary technician. I have been at Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital since 2007 and have a special interest in veterinary dentistry and laboratory.

I share my life with my husband, 2 children, 2 cats, and a little dog. My free time is often spent with family enjoying the outdoors in the summer and trying to enjoy the outdoors in the winter.
