I grew up in Northern Baltimore County in Maryland. I always knew from a young age I wanted to work with animals in some capacity. Since I was 16, I have been working in animal hospitals as various roles from kennel assistant, to veterinary assistant, to veterinary technician, to my current role as a supervisor. I just recently received my associates in Veterinary Technology and am in the process of obtaining my veterinary technician license to become a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT).
I joined the Friendship team in May 2021 as a surgery technician. I love specialty medicine and working as a technician is so rewarding. Prior to Friendship, I have worked in a variety of settings including general practice, emergency medicine, shelter medicine, zoo medicine, neurology specialty, orthopedic specialty, and rehabilitation and pain management. Specialty medicine is where my true passion is due to the wide variety of treatment options we can offer our patients. Joining the Friendship team has been unlike any other hospital where I’ve worked. The culture and quality of medicine are unmatched.
When I’m not working, I enjoy exploring DC and all it has to offer and spending time with my Jack Russell Terrier, Leo.
