In addition to working in many different animal hospitals during the past three decades, she also worked with marine mammals at Mainland and with exotic animals and the Sacramento Zoo.

Their beloved cat, Obi, a special needs cat who was paralyzed in the hind legs for the most of his life, passed away recently.
