Hi! I graduated from Michigan State's College of Veterinary Medicine in 1981 and soon after left for warmer climes like California and North Carolina. I just couldn't stay away though and chose to come back to Michigan and settle in Grass Lake -- it is a wonderful place to live and work. My special passion at work is dentistry -- I love to see how improving oral health can add energy and happiness to pets. I enjoy singing, hiking, reading and traveling to experience the beauty and wonders of nature. My husband and I are completely well trained by our pets -- Herman our Amazon parrot and Dacy our black lab.
