Nicole: I have always enjoyed working with animals and cared for a variety of exotic pets growing up. While I love all animals, I have a special passion for exotic pets and their husbandry. I am a 2008 graduate of the Macomb Community College’s Veterinary Technician Program. Before joining the Warren Woods Veterinary Hospital team in 2007 I worked at different pet stores and did an internship at the Detroit Zoo. I also enjoy traveling and attending conferences and continuing education classes whenever possible to expand knowledge as a LVT and with exotics. I am a member of the Michigan Association of Veterinary Technicians, National Association of Veterinary Technicians, Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians and American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association. My boyfriend and I share our home with Poonchkei an adorable orange tabby cat, a mischief of rats and variety of reptiles including a spiney tail iguana, various smaller lizards, tortoises and box turtles. In my spare time I enjoy working on and redecorating my Warren home, scrapbooking, and spending time with my zoo, friends, and family.
