To the Many Wonderful Clients and Patients I've worked with at MASH,
This letter is to inform that I have left MASH to pursue other opportunities. I want to thank Dr. Roman and her family for opening up their clinic to me and entrusting me with the many wonderful clients and patients who have been loyal to MASH for the last 30 years. My time here has been inspiring as I have worked with you all to create health, balance and joy for the beautiful animal companions with whom we are honored to share our lives.

On May 20, 2019, at 11:30 AM, Sandy, an 8 year old unspayed Lab was presented unable to stand with a temperature of 100*. It was her first time at our clinic.
