Renee moved here from California a few years ago to be closer to family and to find a forever home for her herd of horses to be able to live with her and her husband on property. She has been a client of CVVS since she moved here and was so excited about the work we do here that she has chosen to join our team as the Hospital Manager, translating her previous experience in developing psychotherapy practices in California to managing a vet practice. This new venture allows her to marry her love of animals, big and small, with her enjoyment of practice building.
She and her husband happily tend to their herd of seven horses, a pot belly pig, six chickens, seven ducks, four dogs, and a cat. Renee enjoys spending time with her family, both human and furry ones alike.
