I first talked about wanting to be a veterinarian in 7th grade and happily was able to fulfill that dream. I attended Texas A&M University for my undergraduate and veterinary degrees. I love working with animals and am lucky to work with people who love animals, too. It's my passion to combine those feelings for creatures great and small with a thrill for science. Using that scientific knowledge to help pets and their people is wonderful!
My family includes my very understanding husband, Keith, (all those animals, including adoptees and fosters!), a son, Sean, and, daughter, Catherine, 2 dogs, Bonnie and Domino, and 2 cats, Indy and Q.
Thanks to my husband's 26 years in the Air Force we've moved ourselves and numerous animals around the U.S. and to Germany and South Korea. We're happy to call Northern Virginia home now!
