Personal Interests

Recently, married, my husband, Randy, was a package deal with two playful cats, Molly and Misha. Outside of work I spend my time playing co-ed volleyball, taking pilates and yoga classes and enjoying my home in beautiful Rappahannock county.

How I Got Here

My father was a physician and my mother a nurse so I had a strong interest in all things medical. I also had a passion for animals from a very young age so as I matured those two interests merged into a career in Veterinary medicine.
