She works for the joy of being able to ‘puppy nap and ‘kittynap’ the babies when they come in for exams. Mark helps socialize new patients with experiencing new people and help them learn that the veterinary hospital is not a place to be scared to come to visit.

She and her husband, Larry live with the babies, Bella the golden retriever and Skip the kitty who thinks he is a dog. All are spoiled as much as possible.
