The amazing individuals that I get to work with every day is what inspires me most about Premier! Each person is genuine, communicative and truly cares about the relationships that they foster with clients and co-workers. I feel like I’ve been a part of the team from day one.


Before joining Premier, I worked for nearly 10 years as a receptionist in a very busy, female-owned veterinary hospital. While I loved seeing animals on a daily basis, my passion was for their people. Bringing your pet to the vet can be such an emotional experience, and it was my job to make sure each client’s needs were met, whether that meant getting their questions answered or bringing them a cup of water. Their comfort was my top priority.
I was born and raised in Alaska and spent my teens and early 20’s in the Bay Area. After my parents moved to Humboldt County, my husband and I visited them once or twice a year. As the years went on, that increased to three or four visits or more. After each visit, our yearning to come back grew stronger and we realized that this is where we want to build a home and raise our family. In 2017, we made it happen.


My two young daughters keep us active. Our oldest loves her weekly gymnastics classes in an amazing local program and my husband enjoys taking the girls to feed the fish at Mad River Fish Hatchery. We thoroughly enjoy all of the local events that are featured here, especially over the summer. However, our ideal weekend is spent taking walks around the neighborhood and hanging out in the backyard with the dogs.
