After moving slightly north and receiving training at the Humane Alliance Spay Neuter program in Asheville, she has narrowed her focus to surgery at Cabarrus Spay Neuter Clinic.

In her off time, she runs her household with her husband, Robert, three daughters, and their perfect Goldendoodle, Rudy.
