    Practice Owner
    Joined team: January 2, 1985 (Original Owner)
    Pets: Chase (Golden Retriever), Peco and Stray (both Chihuahuas), John (Mastiff), B.C., Li-Li, Timmie, and Callie (all domestic short haired cats).
    Hobbies: I enjoy watching (and some playing) sports, especially when my children are playing. I especially love spending time with my family and church and related activities.
    Favorite thing about job: I love the relationships with the pets and their families that develop over time and doing all that we can to help pets live healthy happy lives.
    Favorite hospital memory: I remember a young dog we nick-named "Rocky" that would eat anything that a 3 year old boy in the family would throw into his dog lot. One day the owner brought "Rocky" in because he had eaten some stones that his little friend had thrown to him. Fortunately, "Rocky" did well in surgery and recovered quickly after we removed 37 stones from his stomach. Now that was a loyal dog!
