What is your background?
I was a speech-language pathologist for 12 years prior to coming to Embrace. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders from Bowling Green State University and my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Akron. I have worked in nursing facilities, hospitals, and assisted living facilities during my time in the medical field.

Do you have any pets currently?
Dixie Mae, my 5-year-old black Labrador Retriever. She is a Canine Good Citizen and therapy dog. I also have an 11-year-old tuxedo cat named Chloe.

What is your favorite pet-related memory?
Meeting my first dog, Daisy, Golden Retriever. When I was 4, my parents brought me to the breeder to pick out our puppy from the litter. Daisy was the first one to run to me and it was love at first sight! We were inseparable from that moment on.

What’s your favorite thing about Embrace?
I love the atmosphere. It's laid back and everyone is willing to help. I like the friendliness of everyone I have met so far!

What do you like to do in your free time?
I love sports, especially the NFL. Go Steelers! I love spending time with my pets. Dixie and I love hiking, swimming, and boating. I love yoga and fitness things in general. I’m also a big nerd and love Star Wars, Doctor Who, Firefly, comics, etc.
