I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland.  For 17 years I worked in a veterinary clinic located in Ellicott City, Maryland.  My family and I relocated to Hanover in 2007.  For awhile I was a stay-at-home mom, a teacher’s aide and now I am returning to the veterinary field.  My family includes my husband, 2 daughters and 2 cats.

I enjoy cooking and baking.  My favorite thing to do is go to the beach. I can’t wait to get to know everyone and hear all about your furry family members!
