All the creatures should be treated with love and respect including our furry friends and humans (and spiders! Hey you over there, don’t frown. They are good guys:).
I try to remember that every day as I interact with patients, patient’s family, and coworkers.
I grew up in Japan, where I volunteered at a museum and an animal rescue group. I was also national park ranger/researcher, and worked at small animal hospital after graduating from University. I moved to Seattle and had different jobs while learning English. After I became more familiar with this culture and comfortable with the language, I found the passion of working with animals again. I worked at a small animal practice and Emergency room. In 2017, I coincidentally met Dr. Hung at a seminar who was looking for Licensed Vet Tech at that time. We started talking and before you know it, I became one of the team members of Eastside Veterinary Associates. Time flies.
When I’m not working, I spend time with friends, go out social dancing (Lindy hop, Blues, Tango, etc.), hiking, camping, and cuddle up with my fur baby. And oh yes, I enjoy good food!
