It has always been in my blood to work in the medical industry and to help others, with my mom being a registered nurse and my dad a firefighter. However I never really wanted to work in human medicine. I grew up with a menagerie of pets. Dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, gerbils, hamsters, mice, chickens and one gorgeous Arabian horse. And so began my dream to be a veterinarian and then a horse trainer, then a horse stunt rider and then a veterinary technician. But the world wasn’t ready for me to begin that work yet. Instead i had two beautiful children that are my whole heart. Now, as my children have grown some and I reentered the workplace I decided to follow my dream and work with animals. I love working here at Holladay vet and taking care of all the sweet pets and their owners that walk through the doors. When I’m not at work I’m usually in the summer mountains fishing and camping with my 2 kids, husband, flat coated retriever, and husky/malamute. Typically we leave the cat at home. When I’m stuck inside you will find me Olympic weightlifting, binge watching Netflix or studying for my veterinary technician certification.
