Professional Interests

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.

Personal Interests

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).

Education

University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine, Class of 2017

How I Got Here

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.
