I was born in Winston-Salem, NC but have moved all over including Oklahoma, Tennessee and a variety of cities in North Carolina. I chose Wilmington to get a fresh start on life but mainly for the warmer weather. I love animals, for all the obvious reason such as unconditional love and devotion, the puppy kisses and sometimes if you are lucky their goofy grins. I love how they always know when you are sad and want to make you feel better. I wanted to work at Atlantic Animal Hospital because I wanted a place that would help me reach my career goals, gain hands on experience and if you love your work, it never feels like work. I have experience in volunteer work for varies animal species, basic obedience training, doggie daycare facilities and am certified in animal CPR. I have 2 dogs which are named Dutchess and Tank as well as an outside cat that adopted me as their own plus my little gerbil named Joey.
