I grew up in central Florida and worked at a veterinary hospital there for ten years prior to starting a family. In 2002 my husband and I moved to Asheville to raise our two boys. I was a stay at home mother until the summer of 2008 when I starting working part time in client services at R.E.A.C.H. I enjoy emergency medicine and helping owners and their pets while they are here. I have two dogs and one cat and my family enjoys occasionally fostering animals in need. We also enjoy being outside and love hiking, camping, and kayaking, especially near the waterfalls in this area. I love how God reveals himself to me through nature in the beauty that surrounds us in Asheville and I am very thankful to Him for introducing me to a wonderful church family in 2005. I have learned and grown a lot from my brothers and sisters in Christ.
