I have been at Coble Animal Hospital since 2001. I attended the University of Illinois in Champaign for both undergraduate school and vet school. Although Coble Animal Hospital is my "home-away-from-home", I really live in Spaulding, less than 3 miles from where I grew up. I have a wonderful, kind and supportive husband, Scott, who is the Illinois statehouse bureau chief for Small Newspaper Group. I have three beautiful daughters, Grace, Anna and Caitlan - they are my greatest joys and they remind me every day about what is most important in life.
I also have Gail Saner who is my best friend, sister, and "second mommy" to my kids, and a brother, Bob Saner and his wife, Janie, and their 3 kids (Amanda, Christopher, and Jordan). Of course I have many pets - Hershey, Ronnie, Darcy, Dinkie, Holly, Huey, Lester, Penny, Sylvia, Kitty, Lemon, Buster, Charloette, and Jack. I would have more, but Scott says we have enough (but what does he know? I think we need some birds and some saltwater fish....)
When I'm not here, I'm with my girls, and I pretend to be a variety of different people for their enjoyment - Spongebob, Plankton, Dora, Diego, Thomas the Tank Engine, etc. If I had spare time, I would be reading (I love Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Mysteries, as well as the Classics.), watching movies (Star Wars, Harry Potter), the Discovery Channel or Murder Mysteries/True Crime Movies, sewing, or my favorite - napping. I also like to eat!
