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