Carrie joined Risius Family Veterinary Service in July 2010 after working in the veterinary field for more than 12 years. Carrie began her veterinary career as a receptionist but she quickly decided she wanted to become a veterinary assistant.

Carrie’s fur family includes a golden retriever mix named Reese, a Yorkie named Lily, and cats Tunsis, Tweety, and Spooky. Recently Carrie has become a Feline Advocate for the clinic and is working towards her Basic Animal Rescue Training (BART) certification.

In her spare time Carrie enjoys wood working, antiquing, watching her daughter race BMX bikes and attending stock car races with her husband.
