I graduated from Michigan State University and have been at Plainfield Pet Hospital since August of 1999. I believe in establishing an honest, knowledgeable, and compassionate relationship with you and your pet.

I listen to your concerns, and work with you, to provide your pet with the best care possible, while forming a trusting, long-term relationship.

When I'm not helping pets, I enjoy traveling, hiking, photography, and spending time with my husband and two beautiful daughters.

I have been a Vet Tech since I graduated from Michigan State's Veterinary Technician Program in 1975. Some of my experieces involved managing an all feline shelter in Chicago for 13 years and working at an all feline verterinary practice for 5 years. With all my feline experience, I guess it was inevitable that I became known as the "Cat Lady". I have been at Plainfield Pet Hospital since 2001. After working with cats for about 18 years, it took me a while to get used to working with dogs again, but now I enjoy dogs as much as cats. I have a strong interest in animal behavior. I started out with feline behavior and now I'm learning all I can about dog behavior too. I feel it is important for pet owners to know that the leading cause of death for dogs and cats in this country is euthanasia, as a result of an unresolved behavior problems. Many of these problems could have been avoided in the first place, if pet owners were more knowledgeable about basic canine and feline behavior. In my "spare" time I enjoy reading and photography. I do pet sitting and I have a craft business called "Lillipets". I also co-write a cat behavior column for a local publication called Cats and Dogs. Along with my 5 cats and 2 dogs (this is an unavoidable occupational hazard) I have anywhere from 2-6 young adults living with me, depending on how many friends my kids have ensconced in the basement. I have twins, a boy and a girl, age 21. My goal is to make your pet's visit with us as stress free as possible. Keeping our patients as relaxed as possible makes them less resistant to coming here and ultimately makes our job easier. "Happy pets plus happy clients = happy staff"!
