I was born and raised in Owings Mills, Maryland. I grew up with two older siblings in a house that was always full of animals- dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish- you name it! It wasn’t until my fourth year of college, however, that I realized I wanted to be a veterinarian. At the time I was majoring in Psychology at the University of Miami in Florida with the intent of going to medical school. During a period of uncertainty, I adopted my dog Marley, the sweetest chihuahua-dachshund mix. It was through her that I experienced the positive effect of the human-animal bond on mental health and realized how interconnected veterinary medicine was with human health. It was then that my calling became evident. During my free time you can find me running outside, spending time with family or cuddled up with Marley watching Netflix.

Why do you Work at Friendship?
I love Friendship’s collaborative approach to veterinary medicine and their passion for the human-animal bond. I am excited to start my veterinary career in such a supportive teaching environment. Plus, I am so happy to move back to the DC-Maryland area and away from the harsh New England winters!
