I was born in Pocatello, Idaho and raised inthe very small towns of northern New Mexico. After graduating 3rd in my"large" high school class of 26, I proceeded to try several career fields including construction, retail and picture framing. It wasn't until mid-2008 that I found my true desired career, working with animals.
I have worked at Pet Care Clinic Kuna since April 2008. Originally employed as a"gopher," I have since started online classes, working to earn my CVT (Credentialed Veterinary Technician). As with most of the staff, I am currently cross-trained to assist in most aspects of our busy clinic.
Also, I hold a special love for playing music, my family and all of my pets which include 4 cats: Sadie, Oreo, Sketcher and Dahlia, as well as 1 dog: Stitch.

Ozzie's our original clinic cat. Back in 2004, he was originally a wild kitten that was part of our local spay and neuter project. He was just too cute to let go, and made himself at home. Ozzie acts like he's so neglected and desperate for attention. So if you see the big fluffy guy roaming around, feel free to show him some love. No need to compliment how handsome he is though...his ego is big enough! (Note the "Ozzie" shrine in the reception area.)
Tightie is the local diva! She's usually perched atop her "throne" out in our lobby. Due to her elegant beauty, many times she has been mistaken for a fake cat. Give her some attention and she'll show you otherwise. Unfortunately, Tightie came to us in 2005 due to her lack of ability to be in a household with other cats or children. In the clinic setting, though, she has done very well since she has enough space to herself. Tightie, like all princesses, while beautiful, can get a little moody at times. It's usually a good idea to stay away from her tail. Just give her a nice scratch behind the ears and she's as sweet as can be.
Gray came to us in 2007. He was brought to us by a local high school student after being hit by a car. He, like Ozzie, was also pretty feral. He spent the first six months hiding in the back of the clinic, occasionally sneaking a peak at what we were doing. As time passed on, Grayson learned to trust us, and now you couldn't hardly tell he was ever wild (except for maybe the piece missing out of his ear and only having a nub of a tail...). Originally around 8 pounds, he's since grown probably more than he should despite always being on a diet. Now, he's really just a big ham!
