Education:
BS with Honors in Biology from University at Albany, SUNY
DVM from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine
Clinical year at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Why Emergency Medicine:
My first ever ER case was a cat with a saddle thrombus. I saw how invested the owner was with getting her cat to feel better and the cat did! I find it extremely rewarding when you help the pet and their family. I feel like a superhero.

Get to know me

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be:
Teleport from my home! I would spend more time doing other things (napping, eating, playing with my pets) than being stuck in NYC traffic.

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working:
I enjoy getting a good workout in, exploring with my yorkie, and trying out new foods. I’ll even cook a nice meal for friends.

What has been the most rewarding part of your career/position?
Honestly, it is the thank yous. I love getting thank yous from people in my latin community. I love to educate them on pet care. They are always so thankful to have their pet receive this level of care and love when our team can speak Spanish. It make the patient care much better even after they are discharged.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:
Be comfortable being uncomfortable. This goes with anything. You are forever learning. Trying new techniques. Meet new people. Exploring the world. This can be applied in veterinary medicine and in life.
