Mary was born and raised in upstate New York before moving to Colorado in 2021. She grew up around dogs and cats, but her interest in exotic animal medicine began after adopting a hedgehog during her early twenties. Since then, she has gone on to earn her Associate’s in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology at LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City, NY. After working with dogs and cats for a few years after graduation, Mary was excited to accept a position at Colorado Exotic Animal Hospital to pursue her interest in avian and exotic animals.

Currently, she lives in Denver with two cats and two chinchillas. In her spare time, she loves to read, crochet, or explore her new home state of Colorado.
