Since she was a small child Merrilee knew she wanted to care and work with animals. She currently has 12 years of experience working in the veterinary field and joined the Riverview Animal Hospital team in June of 2020. She loves building meaningful relationships with clients and their pets. Merrilee has two cats at home, Queen Pee Pee and Bunnie. Queen Pee Pee had difficulty moving her back legs and was saved from euthanasia in 2005, following treatment she has made a full recovery. Bunnie (Bugs Bunnie) loves spending time cuddling with her canine companion and scratching the furniture. She also recently adopted a new puppy named Bug, who was love at first sight. While she is not caring for animals she partakes in an active lifestyle of traveling, hiking and doing yoga. Merrilee also enjoys horror movies, game nights and cooking and baking.
