Ariel grew up on a farm in Wooster. She earned a BA in business administration from Ohio University and worked in accounting for several years. She came to LPWC because she wanted experience working in a vet clinic so she could go back to school to become a vet tech.

She has two cats named Azula and Katara, both definitely mama’s girls. She enjoys playing the piccolo, flute and clarinet, as well as photography and gardening.
