I first became interested in a career in veterinary medicine while working in a small animal hospital outside of Burlington, Vermont in high school. I was already interested in science and medicine, and the opportunity to pursue both in helping pets and people was appealing. I feel fortunate to have gotten to know so many truly wonderful pets and people as a veterinarian. They have all taught me something. As the field of veterinary medicine advances, I continue to appreciate the challenge of gaining new knowledge.
Clinical Areas of Interest
Emergency medicine, toxicology, ophthalmology, infectious disease, kidney disease and many more.
Why Do You Work at Friendship?
I first came to Friendship for the opportunity to practice more emergency medicine. Since then I have moved full time to providing Primary Care, but I appreciate working with so many colleagues that share my desire to provide high quality, progressive medical care to pets.
I obtained my BS in Animal Sciences with Honors from Cornell University , and then my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.
