As a young child I knew pretty early in life that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always loved animals and my first word as a child was “horse”. I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona where as a child I owned many different kinds of animals. I graduated from Colorado State University Veterinary Medicine program in 2010. Upon graduation I settled in Flagstaff so I could escape from the “Big City” of Phoenix and move up to the mountains. Shortly after moving to Flagstaff I met my husband Max. We enjoy spending time outdoors with our horses, goats, and dogs. We are expecting our first child shortly and can’t wait to introduce him to the beautiful mountain town we call home. I have a special interest in dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, and oncology.
I moved to Flagstaff to attend NAU where I majored in photojournalism and art and graduated in 2003. Shortly after graduation I felt that I needed to change paths and started to persue the sciences and worked towards applying to veterinary school. I graduated in 2014 from Michigan State University Veterinary Medicine program. I grew to love Flagstaff so knew upon graduation that I wanted to move back to Arizona and find a job in this beautiful mountain town. I enjoy the outdoors and in my free time you may see me snowboarding, playing soccer, and hiking. I am married and have two beautiful little girls. My interests are in soft tissue surgery and internal medicine.
I love my job at CAWC because I love my coworkers, the positive learning environment, and the animals (of course). In my free time I love hiking, snowboarding, and hanging with friends, but my favorite activity by far would be sleeping
I love working at CAWC because it's like working with a big family! From our clients who we see regularly to those I am meeting for the first time, I love knowing and getting to know everyone! Not to mention the team I work with is always upbeat and fun! It is really the people, and cute animals of course, that make working at CAWC so great!
On my free time I love being outdoors with my dogs! They love to go stand up paddle boarding in the summer at Lake Mary, but also love chasing me on a sled in the snow! Of course, we love to go hiking as well!
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and pets. I spend most of my time doing outdoor activities such as rock crawling with my husband, trail riding my horse “Luci” and competing in Cowboy Mounted Shooting.
Ever since I was a young girl, animals of all kinds (but especially horses) were my passion. In the search of finding my first horse I came across Continental Animal Wellness Center and met Dr. Bruchman. When I walked in that day I fell in love with the clinic and I knew I would work here someday. I absolutely love how versatile my job is, it has allowed me to grow and learn in ways that will help me in my future as a veterinarian. When I’m not at CAWC, I am probably either studying the courses needed for vet school at CCC, or at a rodeo as your 2017 Flagstaff Pro Rodeo Queen! This opportunity of working at the clinic has been a huge step toward my future goals and I am so excited to see how else I will grow from this experience!
I love everything dental especially taking x-rays and scaling teeth. I also really enjoy helping the doctors with procedures. In my free time I enjoy fishing, being out in the woods, and arts and crafts.
CAWC has been taking care of my critters since I moved to Flagstaff in 2013. I knew even before I started working here what a caring and skilled group of people work here.
Interacting with our clients and their pets is my favorite part of the job. I am married and have two children & two grandchildren. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes our dog Cinder and 3 horses; Dusty, Ranger & Journey.
