I grew up in a small town in Mississippi and have spent my entire life alongside animals. Strays of all shapes and sizes constantly made their way into our little farmhouse turned animal hospital. My passion grew into a professional calling as I began my collegiate studies at age 18. I have worked at Banfield as a veterinary assistant for 5 years now and I can't imagine myself anywhere else! While earning my bachelors degree at Aurora University I worked at Banfield and volunteered at Field of Dreams Horse Rescue in Maple Park, IL. If I am not at work or with family I am likely to be found at the barn working with rescue horses on training. Animals have been an integral part of my life from my first memories and I am lucky to be able to work in a field I love.
