Marie has been a member of the Rainbow healthcare team since 2005. She is another great example of the College of Southern Nevada's Veterinary Technicians program.
Born in Santa Clara, California, she moved to Tonopah, Nevada in 1987, and considered Tonopah her hometown until 1998, when she moved to Las Vegas to pursue her education. She has always had a love of medicine, and began her medical career as a CNA, on the way to becoming an RN, when she had an epiphany! It came to her that perhaps she liked animals a little more than humans. She has a special interest in the study of parasites and microbiology, and wound management.
When not keeping us in line at the hospital, she enjoys fishing and relaxing with her family. True to the fisherman's creed: Any day fishing is a good day! She shares her life with her awesome daughter Ronnie, her wonderful partner Frankie, and Ringo, a mixed breed terrier puppy.
To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. We are fortunate to have a team member with that positive outlook on life.
