Florida grown since the age of three when my parents moved us down from New Jersey to Fort Myers Beach Florida, I now reside in Fort Myers. I had a passion for animals. When growing up my family always had dogs, cats, birds and fish, to which I was always playing “nurse” on, and I was also always saving strays and injured wildlife, we would take animals to vets or wildlife sanctuary to get all fixed up. I worked several different jobs, Banking, Restaurants and my family business of Auto Body, but I never felt it was my calling, I have now been in the Veterinary field since 1996, and I Love it.
