Without question, veterinary medicine provides the best opportunity to improve the lives of both animals and people.

Professional Interests

My primary focus at Pender is in emergency and critical care medicine of dogs and cats; however, I have been trained to treat emergencies in exotic species, as well.

Personal Interests

I come home to a 5-year-old cat named “Bo.”  In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching basketball, singing karaoke, listening to public radio, and watching “I Love Lucy” and “Seinfeld.”

How I Got Here

I did not grow up with a dog or cat in the household, so I vowed from a young age to pursue a career in which I would be surrounded by animals and the people who love them.  I received my B.S. in Animal Sciences with a Minor in Psychology from Rutgers University and went on to earn my D.V.M. degree at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
