Internal medicine, surgery, preventative care, behavior, and emergency medicine


At home, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, which would not be complete without the many pets that share our home. My hobbies include traveling, exploring nature, and listening to music. I hope to someday see more of Madagascar than the airport

I started in the veterinary field raising orphaned opossums, which led to more traditional work as a kennel assistant in a local small animal clinic and then to training as a technician in an emergency clinic. In school, I focused on emergency medicine and small animal/exotics. I joined Pender after graduation, working in emergency medicine for all the species that are seen here. After a few years, I expanded my focus to preventative medicine and surgery, allowing me to build lasting relationships with pets and their owners.
