Veterinary Technician

At PAWS since:
Pets at home:

Two sweet kitties! Lainey, my senior who is the queen of the household and 2-year-old Bellatrix, or Trixie, who is a mischievous little cuddle bug.

The most rewarding thing about my job:

Working with our most critically ill or injured animals and watching them heal and come into their fun and loving personalities to be adopted.

When I’m not at work, I’m probably:

Watching the Flyers with that Philly passion, going to the movies with my soon-to-be husband, or bouncing around the city with friends!
