I grew up in Western Washington where I cultivated my love of animals and my passion to become a veterinarian. I attended Washington State University where I met my husband and received my BS in Zoology.  I continued on at WSU for veterinary school. Even in school I took a particular interest in end-of-life and oncology care. While working as an intern in the oncology service, I saw first hand how amazing and powerful good end-of-life care can be. 

Once I graduated, I worked as a general practitioner in the Western Washington area. I performed in-home euthanasia services for our clients and was drawn to how personal and calming in-home care can be for pets. I loved seeing pets in their own element- whether that be their favorite bed, their owners lap, their yard, or even their favorite beach or park. Although we were saying goodbye, I felt like I got to connect to owners and pets in a more personal way than at the clinic. 

After several years in general practice, my husband and I decided to start Pawprints because we want to help more people have the opportunity to experience in-home end-of-life care on their terms. Our goal is to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible for everyone.
