Amanda has been in the veterinary field for nearly 10 years, two of which were spent at an emergency hospital. Amanda originally went to school for physical fitness and was a certified personal trainer, but was quickly drawn into the animal field when she received hands on training to become a groomer and eventually after a couple years found herself working at an animal hospital- she has loved the field ever since! Amanda has six pets of her own, four cats and two longaired akitas (only a groomer would be crazy enough to have that much fur in their home). When Amanda is not working she is often partaking in spin classes to counter her love of junk food, kayaking, or having “mommy and me time” with her furbabies on the couch (she let’s her husband on the couch with them too, sometimes).
