In my free time, what little I have, I spend it with my three daughters, hiking, fishing, boating, water skiing, farming, and of course rescuing animals both big and small. Our animal family consists of our 3 rescue dogs (Duke, Colin, and Emma- PAH's honorary receptionist), 1 cat (Daisy), cows and a donkey named Molly. Just recently we have added 3 sheep (Daisy, Dollie, and Dibbs) and 8 chickens (Lily, Piper, Roxy, Charlotte, April, Martha, Helen, and Georgia) to our farm. We will soon be adding 4 goats and looking into possible horse and donkey.

I grew up in Toledo, OH and graduated from Whitmer High School in 1979. I was influenced by our family's veterinarian Dr. Bill Mewborn and enrolled at The Ohio State University, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Management in 1984. I then followed through graduating from The Ohio State's College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988.
After graduation, I returned to Toledo and started practicing as an associate at Countryside Animal Hospital, the same hospital where I worked performing kennel help during my undergrad. In 1991, I became a partner in that practice, when one of the owners decided to retire. In 1995, I became certified in Veterinary Acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. I left the practice in 2009 and worked as a relief veterinarian at several hospitals and the local emergency clinic. I moved to Fort Mill, SC in October 2011.
I began doing relief work at Pressly Animal Hospital in December
