Important Pender Emergency Room Update 5/5/2022 

Until further notice, our Emergency Room will be open 24/7 on select days starting 5/1/2022.

Please remember to call us if you and your pet are in need of medical assistance. If our facility is at capacity, our evening and overnight team has access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs.


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.
