Sherri started in the veterinary field in 1987. She has worked in multiple doctor practices and specialty/emergency hospitals where she has supervised and trained many technicians and assisted a variety of veterinary specialists.
Sherri has specialty training in surgery/anesthesia, trauma & critical care, reproduction & genetics, ultrasound & radiology, internal medicine and physical therapy.
Sherri has shown, bred and raised multiple champion Akitas and Norfolk Terriers. She has volunteered as a 4-H equine drill team coach for several years. She also enjoyed doing reining with her quarter horse “Charm” during that time.
She has three wonderful daughters and five grandchildren that she enjoys taking trips with. She currently has a cat named “Yoda” that was left by a neighbor when they moved out.
Sherri’s favorite patient of all time was an Alaskan Malamute named Nikko that was very aggressive and was diagnosed with cancer. He needed IV treatment and bloodwork often. Somehow, they both found that bond and trust. Nikko eventually allowed her to handle and treat him with no assistance from others. Sherri couldn’t wait for him to come in talking to her at each visit. He gained 18 more months of life and a best friend.
One of the things that she loves the most about working in the veterinary field is building bonds with every client and their pets. She wants each client to feel that she is not only dedicated to their pet’s well-being, but to each client’s needs as well!
