"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms." -George Eliot

Professional Interests

I have a particular affinity for creating a close relationship with both my patient and their “parent”. I love the human-animal bond and am thrilled to spend my life facilitating it. In addition to wellness and internal medicine, I also have a particular interest in soft tissue surgery.

Personal Interests

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful children and our menagerie of rescued animals. Together, we enjoy many outdoor activities.


DVM from Colorado State University, Class of 2000

How I Got Here

Out of veterinary school, I participated in a Veterinary Internship at a specialty hospital in northern Virginia; then I started working for Pender in 2001 and have been here ever since!
