With a special interest in Pediatrics and Reproduction. In 2002, she opened a Canine Semen Freezing Center, International Canine Semen Bank – Wisconsin (ICSB-WI/IL), and became Penn-Hip Certified.

On the first attempt at using extended semen, she bred the practice’s first litter of pups from frozen semen in 1998. The advent of in-house quantitative progesterone testing has made this process much more successful.

In addition, they raise and show Pembroke Welsh Corgis and Danish Swedish Farmdogs. Their family has raised 5 puppies for Canine Companions for Independence, a service dog organization.
