I grew up in Ellicott City, MD, a fairly large city in Howard County. I decided to stay close to home and attend the University of Maryland for my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. Growing up in a household with every animal under the sun, including horses, chickens, dogs, cat, and snakes, I always knew I wanted to pursue a job related to animals. It wasn’t until my time in undergrad that I began learning about the immense impact that veterinarians have on both human and animal health and the benefit that animals offer to people, both physically and emotionally, each and everyday. In 2018, I moved to Philadelphia, where I obtained my veterinary degree at The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. In my free time I enjoy staying active, both inside and outside, traveling, and trying new restaurants with friends and family. I am incredibly excited to move back closer to home and explore different parts of D.C!
I ultimately decided to work at Friendship Hospital for Animals based on the reputation they had for quality animal care and workplace culture. The mentorship, guidance, and collaboration provided here by each clinician is incredibly rare and I knew this internship would provide me with a solid foundation for the remainder of my veterinary career.
