At a young age, she always knew she wanted to work in the veterinary field. Her parents showed so much compassion towards every animal and their pets were treated like family. She actually was born in Russia, but was adopted in 2001 and moved to Santa Fe.
She graduated from Pima Medical Institute in 2013 with her Veterinary Assistant Certificate. Since graduation, she has been working as a technician in general practices for 7 years and now enjoys specializing in Oncology.
When she is not at work, she is spending time with her husband and 4-year old daughter, Elena. You can usually find them outdoors either camping, fishing, farming and/or traveling!
