What is your background?
I am a Veterinary Technologist who most recently worked for Banfield in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. I have been in the field for 10 years, starting with Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital. I am returning to Embrace following a brief hiatus.
Do you have any pets currently?
I have 3 fur babies- Kitten (aka Valentine), Scotch, and Bruce Banner (aka Bruce the Moose); I have a finely feathered friend (Quaker parrot) - Draco; and I have two 2-legged children - Elizabeth (aka Bit, 12) and Gabriel (aka Gaby, 7).
What is your favorite pet-related memory?
My kitten, Bruce, gives me a new pet memory every day. He is an adorable, mischievous, lover boy.
What’s your favorite thing about Embrace?
My favorite thing about Embrace is being around other pet lovers.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am forever interested in learning new things and learning more about known topics. I see myself as a chronic student of life. In my spare time I make jewelry, knit, bake, and a multitude of other crafty hobbies. I am a proud member of the SCA, a medieval reenactment group.
