Carrisa comes to us from the west coast. After having s variety of careers that included the culinary arts, being a canoeing instructor, a judge for intermediate level choirs, and quality control inspector for a large specialty retailer, she decided to build on her lifelong love of animals by joining the veterinary profession.

Her love of her new career choice is evident in everything she does!

When not at work, she spends time with her cats Grendal and Skitty or is out hiking, fishing and golfing. She also is a beer connoisseur while attending concerts.
