Important Pender Emergency Room Update:
Beginning on 7/12/2021, Pender had to adjust our emergency hours. We are open to see incoming emergencies from 7:00am-10:00pm until further announced. Pender will still have qualified Veterinary Professionals for nursing care 24/7, 365 with a doctor on call for hospitalized patients. Since an Emergency Veterinarian is not onsite after 10:00pm, please remember to call us if you need help with your pet, as our evening and overnight team does have access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs during night-time hours.

I love all of my patients, but have a special place in my heart for cats. I am Fear Free certified and hope to give your pets an enjoyable experience while visiting us.
I love spending time outdoors and enjoy bicycling, camping, kayaking, swimming, and hiking. Recently I moved from Central Florida with my husband Kevin and our four fur babies; 3 cats (Ella, Maggie and Buttons) and 1 dog (Webster).
Prior to pursuing a career in Veterinary Medicine, I received my Bachelors degree in Hospitality Management and spent many years in the hospitality industry working in hotels, restaurants, Walt Disney World and as a flight attendant for JetBlue Airways. When I had my epiphany of wanting to become a veterinarian, I joined the Class of 2017 at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.
