Marie has been working in veterinary medicine for 4 ½ years and joined our reception staff in May of 2017. Marie started her career as a volunteer at the Riverside Animal Shelter. In 2011, she helped a shelter in Memphis, TN during a tragic flood incident. It was during this mission that Marie realized her passion. In addition to helping animals, Marie volunteers with Heal the Bay and a children’s orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. In her spare time, she loves to travel, volunteer, attend concerts, drink coffee, and watch sports. Her travel goals are to visit a different country and a different state every year and to visit all the baseball parks in the US. At home, Marie has a crazy, 1-year-old Rottweiler appropriately named “Rotten Charlie.”
