I originally started a profession in the veterinary field in 2000. I was a receptionist in a vet clinic for 9 years. I actually worked with Dr Dallas Burrell there. When I was approached about coming to work for Stoney Corners Veterinary Service, I jumped at the chance!!! Going back to work with people and their pets was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. The fact that I would be working for the Burrells was a bonus and an absolute dream come true. My heart is so happy!
While I feel most "at home" at the front desk, I have also been trained to run the blood work and urinalysis machines. I occassionally assist the doctors in the rooms.
My goal with every visit is to make every client feel like they have been heard. From the moment someone walks in our door until they leave, I want them to feel acknowledged and important. I want to make a connection and build a relationship.
My family consists of my wonderful husband, Chad, and 2 handsome stepsons, Noah and Caleb. We also have a 4 legged child, a pitbull named Sadie Mae.
