Born an Iowa native, I was raised in Louisiana since two years old. My passion for animals developed early as my family had a wide array of creatures growing up- from iguanas and rabbits to cats, dogs, and racehorses.
I spent several years caring for thoroughbred racehorses alongside my step-father, now a retired trail-blazing equine veterinarian. It was the fascinating connection I had with all kinds of animals, the ability to think and relate to them, that led me to pursue an undergraduate degree at Louisiana Tech University.
Upon finishing undergraduate school, I decided to take a road less traveled and spend the next three years studying veterinary medicine at St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies. As you can imagine, our notes were laminated, we studied underwater, and there was always a little sand in our backpacks. My time spent there allowed me to grow and develop lifelong relationships with people and colleagues from all over the world.
In regards to veterinary medicine, I enjoy the neat, long-lasting relationships that develop with our clients and their animals. I also enjoy internal medicine and soft tissue surgery.
My most favorite hobby is traveling. I deeply enjoy seeing and experiencing things for the first time. I love watching wildlife, throwing pottery, and learning to play piano. I have a special appreciation for plants and antique furniture. All of my hobbies are often spent with a little weenie dog named Penelope by my side, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
