Spending time with her husband hiking and visiting waterfalls in the Hudson Valley with their dog, Pippa.
What has been the most rewarding part of your career:
Honestly, it is difficult to say there is one thing that I find the most rewarding. I love everything about my career. I love being there for pets and their families when they need it the most. I love the medicine. I love the constant drive to keep trying to improve and learn new ways to help my patients. I enjoy working with other doctors/ technicians and learning new things from them. I love seeing new doctors develop their confidence and grow as veterinarians. I enjoy the challenge of it all.
The Best Piece of Advice I’ve ever been given is:
Don’t make decisions out of fear alone. Essentially, don’t let fear be the only driving force in your decision making. Don’t avoid doing something because it scares you, cause sometimes those are the most rewarding things to do.
