A Pacific Northwest native, I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Veterinary medicine has been a constant presence in my life, as I grew up hearing my mother’s stories and visiting the veterinary clinic where she practiced. I left Seattle to attend the University of Pennsylvania, where I earned my BA in Biology, before returning to Washington to study veterinary medicine at Washington State University. As veterinary students do, I adopted several animals while in Pullman: two majestic cats and a wonderfully goofy dog. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, hiking, experimenting with new recipes, and catering to my pets’ every whim.

Why Do You Work at Friendship?
Friendship stood out to me initially because of their dedication to high quality, evidence-based medicine in a fast paced, high volume hospital. As I learned more about their team, I was impressed by their commitment to collaborative medicine and their compassionate, patient- and client-focused mentality. Additionally, as a new graduate, I value their commitment to mentorship and continuing education. I am excited to be a part of this amazing team!
