Professional Interests

My professional interests include soft tissue surgery and Theriogenology. I helped found “Pets on Wheels”, which provides pet visits to nursing homes through the state of Virginia. I also serve on the Board of Clinical Practice at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

Personal Interests

My personal interests include spending time with my family, farming, fishing, woodworking, horseback riding, and taking care of my family pets (2 dogs, 7 cats, 1 burro, and 1 horse). I’m also a very proud member of the Grandpa’s club. My entire family is active in our Church and within our community. I truly enjoy giving back and serving to improve veterinary medicine in general. I also truly enjoy the people and relationships in my life. This is why my work is so rewarding for me.

Education

DVM from Ohio State University

How I Got Here

I have been passionately pursuing my career in veterinary medicine since I was 10 years old. This was founded with personal pets and working on family and friends’ farms. Dr. Don Powell and I became partners in 1971 with a dream of building a state-of-the-art veterinary practice, grounded on the principals of integrity, compassion, and quality of care.
