I graduated from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997 after completing my bachelor’s degree in animal science. While at Cornell, I participated in feline virology research and worked with the small animal emergency surgery service.
Following graduation, my husband and I relocated from Ithaca, New York to Northern Virginia. After practicing in Virginia for several years, I joined the Friendship staff in 2004. My interests include emergency medicine and general practice.
I became a veterinarian because I enjoy helping people and their pets in a direct way. When not at work, I enjoy traveling with my husband, visiting family in New England, and spending time with our two dogs, Mattie and Emma, both humane society rescue dogs. My hobbies include running, home improvement projects, and studying foreign languages.
