Our Veterinary Team



Practice Manager &
Certified Veterinary Technician


I began my career in veterinary medicine about 30 years ago working as a veterinary assistant.  After working as an Animal Health Technician for the Army in Germany, I moved to Las Vegas. I went to school at the Community College of Southern Nevada, where I received my degree in Veterinary Technology.  Later I earned a BA in Business Management with an emphasis in Agriculture.  I moved to Wisconsin in 2006 and became credentialed in Wisconsin as a Certified Veterinary Technician.  I recently started working for Animal Hospital of De Pere as the Practice Manager.

I enjoy working with clients and helping them develop their relationship with their pets. 

I have lots of children as I have been a human foster parent for the last 10 years.  I have two daughters, Rya and Shyloe and one son, Ed.  I have a sassy dog named Shadow, two cats, and so many guppies I can’t count them. 

When I’m not wrangling kids and animals, I enjoy reading, gardening and hiking. 




I started my veterinary experience in 2003, joining the Animal Hospital of De Pere team in 2005. I enjoy the veterinary field and the relationships between pets and their people.  I have a strong interest in native wildlife and rehabilitate several species of WI wildlife.  My special interest is the care and conservation of insectivorous bats.  My family includes my husband Steve, and sons Jordan and Rolf.  I have 2 dogs, and 2 cats.  I am a member of AWARE (Alliance of WIAnimal Rehoming Effort), NWRA (National Wildlife Rehabilitators Assoc.)and R-PAWS (Rehabilitation Program at the Wildlife Sanctuary.)




I have worked in the veterinary field since 1996 and I joined Animal Hospital of De Pere in 2013.  I have a strong love for helping animals and enjoy every aspect of my job. 

My husband and I have 3 children and our pack consists of 10 golden retrievers and 2 orphaned chihuahua mixes.  We also have 2 cats, 4 foster birds, dozens of abandoned Koi, a bearded dragon and a guinea pig. 

My hobbies include wildlife rehabilitation, traveling and gardening.  I am also an avid sports fan.  I also enjoy breeding and training golden retrievers for service work. 


Receptionist and Kennel Assistant


My job at Animal Hospital of De Pere includes checking clients in and out, greeting clients and their furry babies, slinging treats and making sure both the clients and patients are happy. 

I am currently attending NWTC and studying Graphic Design. 

I started working at Animal Hospital of De Pere a year ago and I have learned so much.  I love animals and I always have.  When I was younger, I wanted to be a veterinarian.  I’m thankful that to work here because it gives me the opportunity to work closely with animals. 

My family consists of my husband TJ and my three cats Nadya, Nika, and Minako.

I love to draw, listen to music, read, serenade my cats and cosplay.
