Bree is a client care specialist at Petersen Pet Hospital. She has lived in Cedar Rapids since 2007, shortly after her high school graduation. She grew up in Edgewood, IA as the oldest of 4 children. She has a 9 year old cocker spaniel named Ziggy who has a personality all his own.

She has always been the most passionate animal lover in her family and was known for saving worms off the sidewalk when it rained or helping bugs make their way back outside. When she was 16, she was determined to have a horse. Bree worked hard, saved all her money from her part time job and bought her own horse! She enjoyed many years with him through high school and college. She earned her Bachelors in Nutrition from Kaplan University in 2014 and her intention was to pursue her dietetic license. She worked as a groomer through college and ultimately decided a career in the pet industry was her calling. Bree had been a local groomer since 2010, which fostered her love for animals and making them feel their best. However, when the opportunity arose to work for the wonderful veterinary hospital she had frequented as a client, she couldn’t pass up joining this amazing team!

Bree’s family lives in Wisconsin and she takes frequent trips north with Ziggy to spend time with them. When she is home she likes to cook, watch Game of Thrones, be with friends and explore the outdoors with Ziggy.
