Why Emergency Medicine:
Emergency medicine is among the most exciting and fascinating branches of veterinary medicine.  On any given day, we are challenged to investigate a multitude of diseases involving any and every body system.  Also, being in a position to support people and their pets through some of their darkest moments is extremely rewarding.  Seeing an animal walk away happy is the culmination of a job well done.

Get to know me

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be:
My superpower would be the ability to extract and expel disease (reference the character John Coffey from Stephen King’s “The Green Mile”).  To merely touch something/someone and make them healthy again is the most valuable gift someone could give.

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working:
Spending time with family, friends, and my dog, Nutmeg.   Photography and seeking out new experiences is cool too.

What has been the most rewarding part of your career/position?
My most recent chapter since joining VEG has been the most fulfilling for me.  I don’t mean to discount the amazing experiences I’ve had in the profession thus far, but having the responsibility of taking care of a hospital (and everyone within) is a real privilege.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:
“Pay yourself first – financially, emotionally, and spiritually.  Prioritize the things that make you complete and whole”.
