Miranda has been in the veterinary profession since 2004. She started off working at Palos Animal Hospital as a Veterinary Assistant/Technician Assistant until she attended Joliet Junior College (JJC) to obtain her Veterinary Technology Degree. Miranda graduated from the Veterinary Technician program in 2013, but it wasn’t until later that summer that she took her board exam and became a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT.) Miranda also has earned a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale.
Miranda worked in emergency medicine at Care Animal Emergency Services for five years. She started as an extern in June 2012, and then after accepting a full time position as a CVT, was promoted to Practice Manager in 2014. It wasn’t until she and her husband wanted to start a family that she decided to switch gears and head back to her roots in general medicine, joining Riverview Veterinary Clinic in July 2017.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends as well as time outdoors, hiking, camping, fishing, and relaxing in her hammock. Even though she doesn’t have any children yet, her furry babies include 3 dogs – Vegas a Husky/Coonhound Mix, Quigley a French Brittany Spaniel and Kai a Husky/Aussie Mix, 5 Guinea Pigs, a Leopard Gecko and last but not least, 22 adored chickens! If that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, she is hoping to expand their family by two little feet very soon!
