D.A (Doctor’s Assistant)
With The Parkway Veterinary Hospital since 2001
My contribution to The Parkway Veterinary Hospital is to assist our doctors and technicians with everything from preparing patients for exams, filling prescription medications and supplies, preparing lab samples, client education and resources, and phlebotomy. I love interacting with different patients throughout the day, especially guinea pigs–everyday is a chance to learn something new.
Education/Training: I began as a receptionist for a small 1 doctor practice and working at Parkway for the past 12 years as well as continuing education classes.
Hobbies/pets/family: I love to make things with my hands–collage and found object/recycled art , photography, stationary and paper goods I have a passion for being in the wilderness and try to get out into the forests and mountains of Oregon and Washington as often as possible. I coexist peacefully with 3 cats – Rio, Bella & Bear along with my husband Ken.
