I was born in Washington D.C., but I grew up in Toronto, Ontario. Then moved to a suburb just outside Philadelphia. I received my undergraduate degree from Duke University, where I double majored in French studies and Biology with a focus in marine biology.
I attended veterinary school at the University of Florida, where I gained a passion for comparative oncology and small animal internal medicine. Following vet school, I completed a 1-year rotating internship in medicine and surgery at Friendship Hospital for Animals, followed by a 3-year medical oncology residency program with The Oncology Service.
I live in D.C. with my scruffy mutt named Mowgli, whom I adopted during veterinary school. I enjoy running, hiking, biking, and generally being outdoors. I am very excited to rejoin the Friendship Hospital for Animals team!
Clinical Areas of Interest
- Hematopoietic cancers
- I also enjoy participating in clinical trials exploring new treatments for dogs and cats with cancer.
Why Do You Work at Friendship?
I did my rotating internship at Friendship and stayed on to complete a three-year residency with the oncology department. I love working here because there is such a diverse knowledge base within the hospital which allows for a truly collaborative approach to patient care. The doctors and staff are great to work with, which also creates a great work environment.
