Ann grew up in rural New England, where she spent plenty of time exploring the forests, fields, and ponds of the area. These experiences, combined with her adoration of the family pets, made one thing clear: Ann wanted to do everything she could to help the earth’s creatures! For her, a career in veterinary medicine simply makes sense.

Ann cared for pets there for several years before moving to Europe, where she continued to gain experience in the veterinary world. Next, she returned to the United States and settled in the Las Vegas area, joining the clinic family in the fall of 2016 on the recommendation of a friend, Aloha Animal Hospital’s very own Julie.

Ann lives with two rescued dogs at home: a poodle named Roxy, who loves exploring during her long walks; and Little Una May, a Maltipoo, who loves to cuddle up next to Ann while she’s reading. When she isn’t enjoying her own companions’ company or tending to the area’s pets here at the hospital, Ann likes writing—she was even asked to read her own published short story on NPR!—and organizing donation drives for local animal shelters in order to give back to the community’s needy pets.
