Chrissy B. — Receptionist

After raising 4 children in the south my husband, Danny, received a dream job offer, in of all places, New Hope, MN. We moved here in 2016 and we love this place and the snow and the beauty.

I went to Jr. High school and High school with a friend who moved here 30 years ago, she saw my move on social media and asked me to come interview where she worked as a vet receptionist. I got the job and felt I found my calling. Helping people has always been a passion of mine, but people with animals is even better.

North Paws is a continuation in my career as a Vet Receptionist and I could not ask for a nicer crew to work with.

Danny and I reside in New Hope MN with our rescue dog Bo, who is the best dog ever. We enjoy travelling south to spend time with our children and grand children.
