I do whatever it takes to care for your pet and to help them walk out the our hospital healthier.

My small animal career began over 27 years ago and I’ve worked for Dr. Dedwylder since 1991. I feel very lucky to have found the joy in animal nursing early in my life. I am a former licensed wildlife rehabilitator and have also helped with artificial insemination in mule deer and whitetails. My job description includes whatever it takes to care for our patients and to keep the hospital operating smoothly. It is my goal to have at least one good idea a day and to help each patient walk out the door healthier. My current animal companions include one Boykin Spaniel and a few Llewellin Setters. When I’m not spending time with my grandchild and saving turtles, I really enjoy my hammock and bird hunting with my dogs.
