We were married June 11th 2011, had our first son, Luke in October of 2015 and our second son, Chase in May of 2019. My boys keep me very busy!

My Pet:

Waylon a rescue cat. I have taught him how to sit and high five.

Favorite Thing About My Job:

I love to educate owners on preventative medicine. I want to help them do the best they can for their pet so they can live a long – happy life. I love the different things I get to do each day. It never gets boring. Dr. Dullard had me go to Georgia for some scope technology training, which was highly enjoyable. I really like doing scope procedures. I love being the cat advocate for the practice. I am proud to have the knowledge that helps cats be as stress free as possible.

Hidden Talents:

I have a vegetable garden and love canning my veggies to enjoy them all year long.
