Christine grew up surrounded by pets. She has cared for dogs, cats, rats, hamsters, and a duck. She has been working with animals professionally since 1998. She has 13 years of experience in the veterinary field. Christine worked her way from Kennel Technician to Veterinary Assistant, to Certified Veterinary Technician.
She also has experience writing blog posts and sales copy for veterinary clinics, doggie daycares, and pet health supplements.
