I have been employed at New Berlin Animal Hospital since 1998 as a veterinary assistant. I have 5 pets (2 dogs and 3 birds). My dogs, Sydney (heeler mix) and Belle (heeler), are full of energy and have taught me a lot about dog behavior. The birds, Jacob (parrotlet), Larry (Amazon parrot), and Bailey (Cockatiel) provide endless hours of amusement. My love of animals has lead to further education in animal massage and earning my certification as an avian specialist. Additionally, I spent 3 years at UW-Waukesha studying human psychology. During my free time I enjoy watching NASCAR and INDY racing. At some point in my life I would like to travel to Maine in the fall to go whale watching. My favorite part about my job is working with our clients and getting to know their pets.
