I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and consider myself fortunate to have been able to experience living in a number of places prior to settling here in MD. I grew up with many pets and have always had a strong fascination for science and medicine, leading me to pursue a career as a veterinarian.
Currently I live in MD with my beloved adopted pets (1 dog, 3 cats). I also have a horse whom I board at a nearby stable. In my free time, I enjoy horseback riding, CrossFit, travel, and spending time with friends and family.
Clinical Areas of Interest
Sepsis, immune-mediated hematologic disease, polytrauma, snake envenomation
Why Do You Work at Friendship?
I chose to join Friendship Hospital for Animals for a number of reasons. It is a large reputable referral hospital where I can practice high quality medicine with colleagues of a similar mindset and play a role in mentoring new veterinarians. I also love that there are so many opportunities for my own continued learning and growth, and the collaborative and supportive work environment.
