I've always had a hard time with goodbyes; when to say them and how to say them. So here it goes!
I came to Ottumwa in 1985 for a three month summer job; thirty six years later, I'm saying goodbye. I've enjoyed my practice life. I've lived my childhood dream and I thank you! I thank you for allowing me the privilege of being a part of your human-animal bond! With that said, my last day in the office is December 30, 2020.
Now I'm going home to begin a new chapter. Travel with my husband Steve; being a mom and grandma full time and of course enjoying my own animals!
Thanks again and I will always love you Ottumwa, Iowa.
