Annie first started at ORAH in October of 2004. She is one of our most experienced nurses. In addition to caring for hospitalized patients, assisting with surgical procedures, and educating clients, Annie helps to maintain a fresh supply of all necessities for the hospital. When Annie was just a child, she would always beg to go along to the vet when her own pets had appointments. Annie currently lives nearby with her husband Joe and two dogs: Buffie and Lou. She is also a foster for Rover Rescue of Illinois, something she finds extremely rewarding. When Annie is not taking care of animals, she enjoys reading and going to the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Annie loves everyone at ORAH--clients and staff. She cannot imagine doing anything else.
