I was born and raised in River Falls, Wisconsin and as a child we always had various critters running around the house. I moved to Chippewa Falls immediately following my high school graduation and began a family a few years after. I also began volunteering at the Chippewa County Humane Association and not long after became an employee. I knew then that my calling was Veterinary Medicine.
I worked various part-time jobs throughout the years, allowing me to stay home with my three children. And yet- I still felt the pull to do what I was truly passionate about, so at the age of 38, I enrolled in the Veterinary Technician program at Globe University. Many people thought I was crazy!
It was at Globe University that I met Dr. Erin Weiss; she was one of my favorite instructors! During my studies at Globe, prompted by numerous friends and family members asking if I could just “stop by and take a look at something” on their pet, that the idea for Voyaging Vet & Tech Services, LLC was born.
Dr. Erin and I found out quickly that we shared much of the same ideals and passion for making veterinary visits more comfortable for pets and their owners, so shortly after my graduation in December of 2011, we launched VVTS and did our first House Call vet visit on June 4th of 2012.
I have many interests and hobbies, but my second passion in life is my ever-growing family! We now have three grandsons and they are truly the light of my life. I also enjoy many outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, snowshoeing and kayaking. We currently own two dogs- Addie, a Boston Terrier, and Danny, a huge goofy mixed breed Rottweiler as well as three kitties- Albi, Oliver and Paul.

I grew up on a diary farm near Plum City, Wisconsin. As a girl, I was always following my father down to the barn, and helping with small jobs. Always, the arrival of the veterinarian would find me right there beside him, observing if not helping.
I have worked at several small animal clinics in the Milwaukee area until 2010, when my husband and I returned to the Chippewa Valley area. After working at several brick-and-mortar clinics, Patrice approached me with an idea: to start the first house call only practice in the area. It had always been a dream in the back of my mind to be able to work with animals in the place they are most comfortable- their home. It has been wonderful to plan and work with Patrice to build a practice that fulfills our vision of the best veterinary care for animals, and the people that care for them.
In my (limited) spare time, I still enjoy spending time with my sons and husband, reading, gardening, raising chickens, and cooking. I have a lab mix named Drake, three cats, and assorted poultry.
