We are going to miss Bridget greatly while she is at school but we are so excited for her to become a veterinarian! Kristy will be taking maternity leave shortly and will also be missed greatly. However, we are all so excited for her and her family to add a little human to the clan! Myself and the rest of the We Care team cannot thank these women enough for all they do!"

There was a lot to learn when she took over this position and step by step, she showed how much she has learned and developed.
