Professional Summary

I have worked in the Veterinary industry for over 10 years. Working my way through several departments, I've found my passion in Diagnostic Imaging and specializing in it. I have climbed up the leadership ladder, step by step, to where I currently stand as a Supervisor. Taking on multiple tasks, I have grown into a leader and to help the hospital. I love to educate my team in radiology and train new hires for their career in veterinary medicine. I always try to think outside the box while keeping a grounded mentality and utilizing my team as my support through all situations. I thrive off the team morale and would rather work with a team of amazing individuals than do it alone.
