Amy spent a decade at a small animal practice in Saint Louis, Missouri splitting her time between surgery, appointments, controlled drug inventory and managing the clinic's social media platforms. In 2022, she moved back near her hometown in rural Southern Illinois. She still works relief on occasion and enjoys still getting to utilize her mad tech skills.
Amy met Dr. DeWilde when they worked together for several years in Saint Louis. They quickly found out they had a lot in common: Illinois natives with a love for Will Ferrell movies, cats, veterinary medicine, and social media (mainly for the cat memes!). Amy took over the social media management for the clinic they worked at after Dr. DeWilde taught her everything she knew. Over the years, they kept in close contact and collaborated on a few projects together. When a position opened up to join The Social DVM team, Amy happily accepted the opportunity to work together again.
Amy’s professional interests include animal behavior, neurology, internal medicine, and of course, veterinary marketing.
Amy lives on a farm in Southern Illinois with her significant other, 3 kids (all boys), cows, a wild mini Aussie, Wrangler, a snoring Pit Bull, Nala, one very spoiled indoor cat, Jenny, and four even more spoiled garage cats, Pinky, Mama, Whiskey and Larry.
In her spare time, Amy enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being outdoors, listening to music, Blues
hockey, and watching organization TikToks.
