Suzanne, Kennel Attendant "I work part time for Dr. Jyl as a Kennel Attendant. I have worked with animals in boarding facilities, shelters and hospitals for most of my life. I currently have a DMH cat named Doodle and a Yorkie mix named Brisbee. Both came into shelters sick and injured and I was fortunate enough to be able to give them a home. I am happy to be working with Dr. Jyl and her Veterinary family, especially all of the resident animals! In my spare time, I like to read and usually have 3 books going at once, I also enjoy cultivating my green thumb and attempting to keep plants alive."
