I grew up in Michigan and Colorado enjoying the outdoors and a variety of pets. I graduated in 2000 from the University of Utah with a B.S. in Biology. In 2001, I moved to St. Kitt’s to start vet school at Ross University. In 2005, I graduated after completing my clinical year at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. I then moved to NYC for a rotating medicine and surgery internship at Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists. In 2006, I joined the Animal Medical Center’s Emergency and Critical Care department as an Emergency and ICU doctor. After 7 years, I left the AMC for primary care in Brooklyn at One Love Animal Hospital. Realizing my professional passion lies in emergency and critical care, I joined Friendship’s Urgent care department. I recently moved to DC with my two dogs, Cooper and Lottie Brown (the best dog around). I spend my free time running, biking, reading, practicing yoga and hiking with the dogs.
