Born in Portland and raised in Vancouver, Maddy has wanted to work in the veterinary field since she was a kid. That desire to help animals have long, healthy lives was also inspired by the passing of her childhood cat, Moo-Moo, who made it to 15 years old before succumbing to lymphoma. Maddy’s goal is to earn her technician’s license and eventually work in veterinary rehabilitation.
At home, Maddy stays busy spoiling her two cats: the calm and sweet Athena and energetic, mischievous Ellie. Maddy also enjoys computer gaming, music and singing.
