|I began my career at Columbus State Community
College as an Adjunct Instructor in January, 1991. I designed the
evening program plan of study and became a full-time Instructor and
evening Clinical Coordinator in June, 1996.
I accepted the position of Program Coordinator in June 1998, and am currently an Associate Professor teaching Client Relations, Clinical Applications I and II, and the evening program Clinical Seminar series. In 1998, I was honored to be a recipient of Columbus State Community College’s Distinguished Teaching Award, for excellence in instruction.
I enjoy helping students by volunteering on Columbus State’s “Welcome Team,” and am actively involved in the veterinary profession through service as President of the Central Ohio Veterinary Medical Association. I also preside over the Veterinary Technology Program’s Advisory Committee, am a member of Columbus State’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, and serve on Northwest Career Center’s Animal Technician Advisory Committee and Tolles Career and Technical Center’s Small Animal Care Advisory Committee.
To keep my skills current, and bring interesting cases to the classroom, I continue to practice small animal veterinary medicine at Whitehall Animal Hospital, on the east side of Columbus, Ohio. My extended human and animal family includes my husband, daughter, two step-sons, and our dog, cat, and horse. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, horseback riding, and traveling!

|I am a graduate of Columbus
State Community College, 2004, with a degree in Veterinary
Technology. Some experiences include growing up on a small farm with
many farm animals, working on an equine farm, caring and showing for
horses, working at a humane society and small animal veterinary
clinic and working at a diagnostic laboratory.
My Rottweiler, Brutus and rat, Gimli love being around people and other animals. It works out wonderfully that they love people, because I don’t have to worry about how they will act when I am traveling overseas. Some of my traveling experiences include going to the Bahamas and Peru to do volunteer construction work (I have also done volunteer construction work in the United States).
I have also been to China. I truly enjoy other cultures. I also am a BIG reader, which is great while I’m traveling. I enjoy laboratory work, so I’m mainly teaching the laboratory courses such as hematology, microbiology and urinalysis. I will also be gradually transitioned into animal care courses.
EDUCATION: Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology. Currently working on Bachelors in Microbiology at The Ohio State University.
CREDENTIALS: Registered Veterinary Technician.

|I graduated with an Associates Degree, Magnum cum
Laude, from the Animal Health Technology program at CSCC in 1990 and
I received the CSCC Outstanding Academic Achievement and Community
Service award in 1989. After that time, our official name was
changed to Veterinary Technician. I currently serve as a member of
the Advisory Board Committee and as Adjunct Faculty (Evening
Program) of the Veterinary Technology.
I currently work at The Ohio State University in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. I have been working there for 14 years and for the past 9 years I have been supervising and teaching CSCC interns in Equine and Food and Fiber Animal. I also supervise CSCC interns in Radiology. For the last year, I have also been functioning as the Administrative Coordinator for the Equine ICU Technicians at OSU.
I served in the Ohio Army National Guard for 22 ½ years in the Military Police Corps and I retired with an Honorable discharge in 2004. I received the Order of the Marechaussee (Bronze) Award from the Military Police Regiment Association and the Meritorious Service Medal on my retirement. I am very active in my church, Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, and I sing in various choirs and I work in the Sound/Tape Ministry. I am interested in most sports but I grew up loving all animals and my favorites are Quarterhorses and German Shepherds. I currently do not have any animals but I plan to change that in the future.
