What I find most rewarding about my veterinary career is… taking care of a critical patient and being able to send them home healthy to their owners.

My most memorable veterinary moment is when… I assisted on a risky emergency surgery for an Iguana who had ate 3 pennies. The iguana recovered and is now happy and healthy!

Most people may not know this about me… I have been working in the veterinary field since I was sixteen and am originally from New York.

People often refer to me as… Chels

When not at CARES, you can find me… spending time with family, friends and my cat.

My human and furry family consists of… a big orange tabby named Leo
