Favorite Part of my Job

Getting to know our clients and their pets and focusing on preventive medicine to help pets live with a better quality of life!

Why I chose this profession

My interest in the medical field (my Dad was a medical doctor) and in the natural world/animals was the driving force behind my decision to pursue veterinary medicine. I also was attracted by the diversity of what you can do in that field!

Personal Hobbies & Interests
