Important Pender Emergency Room Update 5/5/2022 

Until further notice, our Emergency Room will be open 24/7 on select days starting 5/1/2022.

Please remember to call us if you and your pet are in need of medical assistance. If our facility is at capacity, our evening and overnight team has access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs.

Personal Interests

My favorite thing to do is going on adventures with my daughter. I enjoy going to the gym and weightlifting in my free time. I also enjoy binge-watching TV shows or reading books while cuddling with my dog Georgia and cat Nemo.

How I Got Here

As a kid, I was obsessed with animals. I wanted to have my own of every kind. However, intimidated by the prerequisites necessary for vet school, I shied away from vet med. In undergrad, I started working at a primary care practice that made me reignite my passion for the field. A couple years later, I started working at Pender as a Veterinary Technician. I quickly fell in love with the hospital itself and Emergency Medicine. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I knew I eventually wanted to move back home to Virginia, and Pender always felt like home.
