Hi! My name is Amie and I am thrilled to be a team member at Ark Animal Clinic. I am a mother to 3 beautiful kiddos, a wife and a Dog Mom. I have always been an animal lover and immediately fell in love with my position as a Veterinary Assistant years ago in 2006. It was exactly what I wanted to do. It is my passion to help animals and their owners and build a trusting, meaningful relationship with them. In my spare time, I love hiking, boating and camping with my family. And a good competitive card game to top it off.
