Licensed Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Sunnyside, WA. Married my husband in 2016 at only 19 years old!  I graduated Yakima Valley College in 2018 and found a passion in veterinary medicine. I am pictured with Taco and Tammy, my two favorite chihuahuas, and Pearl my dream Subaru. My husband and I love Disney movie nights cuddling with all our animals. We also have dedicated ourselves to helping and guiding students through youth ministry in the lower valley.
