Chrissy earned her AAS in veterinary technology from Parkland College in IL. She grew up with and took care of lots of stray cats and always knew that working with animals was her destiny. Working in the veterinary field offers her a healthy mix of keeping healthy pets healthy, and restoring sick or injured pets back to health. Chrissy’s favorite part of being on the Parrish team is working alongside other people who are equally passionate about helping animals. On a technical level, she loves doing blood draws and placing IV catheters. 

At home, Chrissy shares her life with a family of pets: Mia, a Pitbull/Hound mix; Stanley, a Havanese; Bruno, a French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix; and Ashie the cat! Fun fact–all of Chrissy’s dogs are the same colors (black and white). When she isn’t caring for her patients, Chrissy enjoys being outdoors, staying active, playing piano, and drawing and painting.
