I grew up in several different states, but I call Fayetteville, Arkansas home. In 2014, I joined Friendship Hospital for Animals and my resident mate, Dr. Hankin. My wife, Lauren, and I love living in DC and exploring the city with our one year old son. We also have two lazy Cairn Terriers who are learning to share their space with a rambunctious one year old.
Clinical Areas of Interest
Ultrasound and Magnetic resonance imaging.
Why Do You Work at Friendship?
I enjoy working at Friendship because of the collegiality among the veterinarians and the hospital’s dedication to practicing the highest standard of veterinary medicine.
