I am originally from Sydney, Australia and grew up with multiple family cats. I was inspired to pursue a career in veterinary medicine after one of our cats was treated for lymphoma at our local specialty hospital. After completing my veterinary degree at the University of Melbourne I worked in general practice in Sydney, before moving to North America for internship and residency training. After finishing my ECC residency in 2013 I practiced as a criticalist in both academic and private specialty hospitals before moving to Washington DC in 2021 to start a nephrology and urology fellowship at Friendship Hospital for Animals. My three cats, Caspar, Hamish and Wolfie, allow me to share their house in DC.
Why Do You Work at Friendship?
I joined Friendship to start a nephrology and urology fellowship with Dr. Foster and the Internal Medicine team. Friendship has a great reputation and I’m looking forward to working in a diverse, friendly, and collaborative environment.
