I have been a certified veterinary technician for more than 30 years and have a MEd from Colorado State University. I am now finishing up my second Master’s program and will have a Master of Veterinary Education (MVEd) from Lincoln Memorial University’s School of Veterinary Medicine by spring 2024. I have been teaching at a local community college in a veterinary Assistant Program and a variety of Veterinary Science and animal science programs for grades 3-5, 6-8, and high school. I am also an associate faculty member at a local university in an equine studies program. I am also a homeschool mom! At home, my family has 3 mini horses, a Paint horse, 4 Nigerian dwarf goats, 9 chickens and 2 cats! I am passionate about sharing my experience and love for animal science and veterinary science with all learners from diverse backgrounds from all around the world! If your learner has a dream to care for animals then I am excited to help them on this first steps!
