I began working at Pioneer Valley Veterinary Hospital in August of 2003. I graduated high school in 1994, followed by 2 years of studies at Mount Wachusett Community College. I received a certificate from Harcourt Learning Center in 2003, after completing their Veterinary Assistant course. Thanks to PVVH I have attended the Northeast Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Florida on a number of occasions. I am currently enrolled in other continuing education courses online.
I currently serve as the Office Manager at PVVH. When I first started working at PVVH, I had a 4 month old Boxer puppy, Dylan, who developed many genetic diseases Boxers are known for. He passed away at 12 1/2 yrs old due to heart complications.
I feel that the non-stop medical struggles we went through were probably the best continuing education I could have ever had! I have the doctors and technicians here at PVVH to thank for helping me keep him going comfortably for so many years!
I currently have another Boxer, “Funny McGee” and a cat, “Sheldon” at home who keep me busy and entertained. In 2005, I began working with The Greenfield Police Department K-9 Unit, fundraising for our local K-9 officers. I am very proud of the work that I have done with them.
