Angela’s work history includes working for Marriott in Chicago, a vet clinic in Indiana and the Cardiology Department. Angela and her husband have two whippersnappers: a daughter born in 2016 and their son in 2018. Angela was thrilled to accept a part-time position with Neurology in 2017.

A FUN TIDBIT: We also wondered what spelunking meant, so we looked it up: spe·lunk·ing /spəˈləNGkiNG/: spelunking is the derogatory term for unprepared cave trips. Origin: “spelunk” is the sound a clumsy caver makes when he slips and falls in a cave and lands in water.
