Complete this sentence: My most memorable day at work was…

Probably last year when we found that we needed to amputate my Dozer dog’s leg.  He had a mass impinging on his sciatic nerve and was completely lame.   He is doing fantastic now, but it was amazing how everyone works together here in the hospital and how supportive everyone is!

What would your coworkers be surprised to learn about your life outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a 6-year-old boy, Colt, and an almost 2-year-old girl, Riley.  I love to camp and trail ride, as well as hitch up our mules and taking them out.  I also enjoy four-wheeling and off-roading.

Do you have any pets?  

Yes–2 rescue Doberman, 5 cats, 1 ball python, 3 horses, 1 mule, 2 draft mules, and 1 miniature horse
