Shmillas = a quirky nickname my husband gave me many many years ago when we first started dating. 


Hello! My name is Hillary. I am a veterinary technician (or veterinary nurse) in Northern California. I absolutely love working with animals of all shapes and sizes. I’ve worked with everything from dogs and cats to lions and tigers. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling as much as possible. I hope to someday see every corner of the globe. Please enjoy reading of my adventures and reach out if you have any questions or suggestions!
