Our Team

The team at Countryside Animal Clinic is dedicated to providing you with the best service in a friendly, professional manner. We appreciate the importance of the human-animal bond--we experience that pleasure everyday in both our personal and professional lives. It is our delight to join with our clients in recognizing and appreciating each cat or dog for their unique qualities and special gifts.

Our mission is to continually challenge ourselves, to be receptive to new ideas, and to promote patient comfort and client education. We are never too busy to answer a question, share an experience, or offer a word of encouragement. We are dedicated to pets and the people who love them.

I am originally from Maryland. I came to Arizona to go to ASU. Soon after graduation I got married and got my very first dog, Brittany. From that point forward I knew I had to work with animals. My husband Paul and I now have 2 adorable, energetic cocker spaniels… our “first born babies” and twins Carsten and Briella, born March 2009. I have been with Countryside in client relations since February 2000.

I am a graduate of ASU with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Biological Sciences with a concentration in wildlife habitat management. My dream job is to become a dolphin trainer or zoo keeper. Animals have always held a special place in my heart and I cannot imagine doing anything but working with them in some way. I am happily married and my children include my adorable sons Noah and Carter and a terrier mix named Buddy. I plan on extending my family with more of the two-legged and four-legged varieties. I have been with Countryside as a Kennel Assistant and Practice Manager since August 2003. As of August 2014, I am currently Countryside's Client Relations and Paw Plan Specialist.

I am originally from Wisconsin. I moved to Arizona to finish school and I enjoyed the weather so much that I stayed. I hold a bachelor's degree in both zoology and anthropology from the University of Wisconsin and a master's degree in anthropology from ASU. After teaching for a while I decided that I missed working with animals and went back to school for to be a vet tech. After finishing school and several internships, I took my national and state board exams and am now a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT) and can't imagine doing anything else. I have three cats, who are little monsters: Oliver, Smudge and Mikey.
