I graduated many years ago from the Medical Institute of Minnesota with a degree in Veterinary Technology. At that time I was the only Veterinary Technician in the Duluth/Superior area. I have worked in various clinics in the area. Twenty years ago, I made a decision to raise my family, being that they are all in college I made the decision to go back to the field I love. Working at Happy Tails has been a wonderful fit with the emphasis on customer service. I am thrilled to be serving the community again and excited for what the future brings at Happy Tails Animal Hospital.
