Pender’s 24 Hour Vet & Emergency Animal Hospital offers all of these for Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area residents.

Current law and our standards prohibit us from practicing medicine over the phone without physically examining your pet but we can assist you in deciding if your pet is having an emergency and needs to be seen by an emergency veterinarian in your area.


If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.―James Herriot

Professional Interests

I have always enjoyed soft tissue surgery and emergency medicine. I also have a strong interest in small animal dermatology and nutrition.

Personal Interests

In my free time, I like spending time with my dog, Valley, at dog parks or on a beach. I also love traveling and I recently finished a 10-day road trip to the Northeastern US. In the future, I am hoping to return to my swimming schedule and learn to play another instrument.

How I Got Here

I was born in Ontario, Canada and grew up in Hong Kong. I spent 15 years there, where I became fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin. I later returned to Ontario, Canada to finish high school. While obtaining my undergraduate and graduate degree in University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada), I worked at some small animal hospitals and dog kennels. I also spent my free time volunteering at multiple local small and large animal practices. All of the experiences allowed me to learn more about the field of Veterinary medicine, I was then accepted to St. George’s University (Grenada, West Indies) for the Veterinary Medicine program and received clinical training at Cornell University. Following my graduation, I decided to move to Northern Virginia and accepted a position at Pender.  I am very excited to have joined the Pender team!
