I come from a large Catholic family, four brothers and three sisters. I was raised by my parents who remain married to this day (they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2014). As I am second to the youngest, I was afforded a lot of freedom/my parents were the furthest from helicopter parents. I was free to run and explore. I enjoyed living in the St. Croix River Valley during my childhood years. I went to college at North Dakota State University where I studied English and obtained a B. A. I then entered the workforce, but found that I was struggling to make ends meet. I had become a single parent and needed to increase my finances. I attended college at Inver Hills Community College where I majored in the Legal Assistant program and obtained an A. S. degree. I worked in the legal field for many years after obtaining my degree. Eventually my love of all animals overtook me and I decided to take classes at Argosy University toward becoming a Veterinary Technician. My interest was mainly in animal behavior classes and not in becoming a vet tech. I then began volunteering at the Humane Society in Golden Valley. I volunteered there for approximately five years in the Behavior and Training Department, assisting trainers with obedience classes. Since that time, I have come to realize that while I do love dog training, I am even more interested in animal care. The day to day tasks that go into helping keep an animal healthy. I have been married to my husband for 9 years. We live in Brooklyn Park and own 1 dog, 3 cats, a guinea pig and a horse (boarded). My first cat was a 6-year-old cat that I adopted from the Humane Society in St. Paul. She was shy and though she didn't hide a lot, she did not like to be picked up and wasn't about to become my immediate friend. She took a few years to warm up to me, but after that we were fast friends. Since I wanted a cat that would cuddle, my solution was to buy another cat. Since that time, I have always owned cats and I currently have three cats. My current cats are all geriatric. I have a lot of experience dealing with their varied health concerns. One of my cats, is a medical mystery he has experienced crystals in his urine, cystitis, inflammatory bowel and a chronic upper respiratory infection. My oldest cat, has kidney failure and I administer subcutaneous fluids every other day. I have owned cats for 21 years and I absolutely love them.
