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.

Personal Interests

My husband and I are excited to be new residents of Virginia. We recently welcomed a baby human to our family, who is fitting right in with his furry siblings – two kitties and a very happy Golden Retriever. We enjoy family time outside, as well as snuggling on the couch to watch Auburn football! War Eagle!

How I Got Here

During veterinary school, I realized my passion for client-patient relationships and communication. I dedicated myself to small animal general practice upon graduation. However, the joys of mentorship and sharing knowledge led me to become a clinician at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine for nearly four years. During that time, my love for geriatric patients and those with chronic conditions led to my completion of certifications in physical therapy (rehab) and acupuncture. I am also a certified Feline Friendly and Fear Free Veterinarian. As a newer member of the Pender team, I am looking forward to developing new relationships with clients and pets in general practice!
