Office Manager

Being the daughter of a Veterinarian I was destined to work at Bean Blossom Animal Clinic with my father. I started working part time while in high school in 1983, then went to full time in 1985. I worked as an assistant and in surgeries with my Dad, and moved to the position of office manager in 1990. While working at the clinic I attended Ivy Tech for medical coding. I have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. Outside the clinic I have always been involved with animals, I showed cattle in 4-H, I was a board member for the Brown County Humane Society and have done a lot of volunteering and fostering for them. I have an extreme passion for my cats and my grand babies. Outside the clinic I babysit my granddaughter and love to travel with my husband, Rob, on our motorcycle.



I started working at Bean Blossom Animal Clinic in 2007 until November 2016.  I took a year off to stay home with my 3 children, Braxton 5, Bennett 2, and Wrenn 11months.  I recently got the privilege to come back to work at Bean Blossom.

I spend most of my spare time traveling to motor cross races watching my husband Anthony and my oldest son Braxton race dirt bikes.  We have 1 dog, Cyrus who is a 3-year Rottweiler.

I had the privilege of starting to work at Bean Blossom Animal Clinic in 1976, working through high school. I Left for a few years to go to college and start a family. I then came back for a total of 36 years as an employee. I started working for Dr. Brester as an assistant and did farm calls. These days I work in front office as receptionist. I was born and raised on my family farm and continue to farm with my husband, Kent. I have spent many years volunteering in both church and other community organizations. Our family showed livestock for several years in both state and national levels. Animals have been a passion for me all my life and I have had the opportunity to have horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, goats, all poultry, rabbits, dogs and cats. We still farm and outside the client I spend time spoiling my 4 amazing grandchildren, restoring my historic family home place and serving God with all my heart.
