Ann graduated from North Dakota State University in 2006 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Veterinary technology. She started work in a general practice with a veterinarian who did orthopedic surgery, which began her love for the specialty.
In 2009, she began work in the surgery department at Moxie Center (now BluePearl Veterinary Partners) in Eden Prairie, MN, where she helped grow the surgery department from one technician and one surgeon to a thriving surgery practice with 5 surgeons and 12 technicians. Ann completed her credentials and earned her VTS (Surgery) certification in 2014.
Ann and her husband recently relocated to the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina, where she joined Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospital as a surgical technician. In February of 2018, she was accepted to the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine DVM class of 2022, and began classes at NC State in August of 2018. She enjoys spending time with her husband and pets, cooking, and going to the beach.
