Why Emergency Medicine:
I chose emergency medicine because I love the challenges and rewards that come with never knowing what will walk through the door. At VEG, we see and treat diseases that some practitioners will go their entire careers without encountering. I enjoy the thrill of diagnosing these cases, treating the patients, and providing answers to the families involved.

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working:
Whenever I am not in the clinic, I am happiest traveling the world. Whether I’m exploring our national parks, traveling abroad, or living out of a tent in the mountains, I love to experience new places as often as possible.
What has been the most rewarding part of your career/position?
The most rewarding part of my career is teaching new emergency veterinarians. I enjoy sharing the opportunities and experiences that I have been given in my career. I also particularly love bringing VEGgies together on international veterinary aid missions.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it
