Vet Tech and Office Manager
Originally from North Wales, UK, I moved to SW FL in 1992. Then in 2001 I moved to Bonita Springs with my mother and twin brother and sister, and I haven't left yet! I attended Estero High school, then SWFL college where I received my degree in surgical technology. I live in Ft Myers with 4 dogs and 2 cats-- Levi, a Boston terrier; North, a Black Lab/greyhound mix; Hunter, a Golden retriever; Benji a snipoo; and Boggins and Rupp, two domestic shorthair cats. I have worked in vet clinics for over 10 years. For hobbies I like to bake custom cakes and play with my dogs.
I'm originally from Palisades Park, New Jersey, but my nationality is Colombian. I moved to Florida in 2002 and have been living in Bonita Springs since 2006. I've been working at Animal Hospital of Bonita since 2006 and I absolutely love it!! I have a daughter Leyla and I'm married. I also have 2 wonderful orange tabby cats-- Hercules and Kaddy and our newest member is Herbie the hedgehog. I love to do arts and crafts, and go on Pinterest to gather ideas. I love camping and off roading (trail riding) in our FJ cruiser. I love the beach.
I joined Animal Hospital of Bonita in 2005 as a vet assistant and have worked in all areas of the clinic. I especially love working in the boarding kennel and bathing and grooming animals. I am originally from Bournemouth, England, which is south of London. I am married with two wonderful daughters, Megan 18 and Chloe 14. We have one cat named Odie and 3 small dogs: Marley, a toy poodle, Mickey a chalky, and Beckham a shokie. I enjoy spending time with my family, 4 wheeling, fishing and horse riding.
I joined our staff in February 2016 after my husband, 2 cats (Monkey and Inky) and I moved to Florida in April 2015. I retired from an animal hospital in Ohio after 41 years in the field, and am a registered veterinary technician. After moving to Florida, my family got a Labrador puppy named Royal. I wanted to continue working part time because veterinary medicine is part of my life and passion.
Originally from Mansfield, Ohio I am a 2007 graduate of The Vet Tech Institute at Bradford in Columbus, Ohio. In the beginning of 2016 I decided it was time for a change so I loaded up my car and headed toward sunshine and palm trees. Don't let my home state fool you I am a Wolverine fan all the way! GO BLUE! My traveling partner and fur child is Rosa my 1 year old cat. She has become an unexpected love of my life as I am sure her feelings are mutual. I have had an amazing start to my career and feel very lucky and excited to begin a new chapter and opportunity here.
