I started the practice with Dr. Noto in 2008 although I began working with him in 2003. I have a degree in Education and was between jobs when I thought working with pets and their families would be a great career. I have been very blessed to work with such great people. I enjoy every day helping pets and their families to live a healthy life.

I started working for Memorial Veterinary Hospital when Dr. Noto first opened. I retired from my job of 38 years and when I came to work for Memorial Veterinary, I found a very welcoming and wonderful staff here. Everyone here is very dedicated and their love of animals was overwhelming to me. I have 10 years old, Yorkie and a 2 years old cat that I love dearly and very spoiled.
