Christine grew up with dogs, birds, and rabbits. It was in her childhood that she originally got started in the animal field which she always knew would lead her to veterinary medicine. She began working in the veterinary industry in 2000 and has been with 434 Animal Hospital for 14 years, holding various positions within the facility (technician, kennel, and reception--- she is our clinic helper fairy!) but ultimately nesting as a receptionist. One aspect that she loves about working at 434 is the compassion the doctors have for their patients and clients. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, crocheting, camping, and art based hobbies like painting and drawing. She loves 80s rock music, country, and classic rock seeing many artists in concert with her parents- such as Billy Joel and Johnny Cash. If you get a chance, ask her about her mini-zoo at home which includes: 2 dogs Moose and Copper, Bear Hawk the rabbit, Marty the Green Cheek Conure, Izzy her Bearded Dragon, and a variety of fish!
