I have loved animals my entire life.  I rode my first pony at age 2 and it was love at first sight!  I am sure my parents regretted that day, because I pestered them until they got me one of my own at age 7.  I took off from there and trained and showed horses throughout my youth and was ranked nationally in Western Equitation and Western Pleasure.  In my free time I raised Dutch and Chinchillas rabbits while trying to convince my numerous dogs and cats that my bunnies were not part of a buffet line.

When it was time to grow up and face the real world I attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a B.S. in Animal  Science.  I also met and married my husband, Ron, and our first pet was a crippled guinea pig named Tiny Tim.  I postponed my dream of caring for 4 legged animals in order to be a mommy to our 2-legged “animals” 2 sons and 2 daughters.  When they were old enough to be trusted not to burn the house down and were embarrassed to be seen with me in public, I knew it was safe to go back to work.  I have worked in the veterinary field for the last 21 years.

I juggle my time between working/playing at Petworks, designing wedding flowers, teaching Primary children at my church, nagging a retired husband who is driving me crazy, spoiling 5 darling grandchildren, and cuddling my beloved pets, my pug Pip (aka Mr. Pip or The Pipster), and my 3 cats (which match the 3 holes in my head) Steve, Yin, and Ming.

I love working at Petworks and look forward to coming to work every day.  I feel very blessed to still be living my childhood dream.
