Bri grew up in Orlando, Florida, where she fostered an immense love for animals, Disney, and the arts. She moved to western Massachusetts in 2016 to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in biology and music, which she earned from Smith College in May 2020. Throughout college, she interned at AZA certified and accredited zoos and sanctuaries across the United States, including the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary in Texas and the Roosevelt Park Zoo in North Dakota. She has a special love for cats of all sizes, and hopes to return to sanctuary, wildlife rehabilitation, and conservation work in the future.
Bri joined the Northampton Veterinary Clinic team in April 2021, where she is working as a vet assistant and receptionist. Her favorite part of working at NVC is seeing the office cats and all of the beautiful kitties that come in to see us every day.
Outside of work, Bri lives with her fiancé Joe, their four cats Pepper, Princess, Tchaicatsky, and Smoked Sausage, and their dog Twinkie. In her free time, she enjoys video games, true crime, horror movies, the color pink, and anything to do with cats.
