Somer has been a member of our team since July of 2013. She began her journey as a veterinary technician with the general practice but fell in love with emergency medicine. Somer received an Associate's degree in science from Joliet Junior College and a Bachelor's degree from Western Illinois University. She aspires to continue her education and one day receive a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.
When not working, Somer enjoys relaxing at home with her fur children; dogs, Samson and Delilah and cats, Astro and Wally. Both of her dogs are frequent flyers in the emergency room because they are blood donors. Somer is lucky enough to have one dog that is DEA positive and the other that is DEA negative. The emergency department is grateful for their help in saving lives and mom is always rewarding them with puppuccinos on the way home from work.
