Important Pender Emergency Room Update: 

Beginning on 7/12/2021, Pender had to adjust our emergency hours. We are open to see incoming emergencies from 7:00am-10:00pm until further announced. Pender will still have qualified Veterinary Professionals for nursing care 24/7, 365 with a doctor on call for hospitalized patients. Since an Emergency Veterinarian is not onsite after 10:00pm, please remember to call us if you need help with your pet, as our evening and overnight team does have access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs during night-time hours.

Personal Interests

Aside from practicing veterinary medicine, I love listening to and playing music. I sing and play keyboard, and have been a part of multiple rock bands over the years. I have a minor in classical piano with classical voice training and love creating my own music. Also, I consider myself a craft beer connoisseur and have found time to appreciate the works of a variety of local brewers. I have four red-eared slider turtles, two cats, two dogs, and a Chilean Rose Hair tarantula.

Education

DVM from Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Bachelor of Biological Science with Honors with a minor in classical piano from Marshall University

How I Got Here

Working as a veterinarian at Pender Exotics has allowed me to fully realize the passion I have always had for exotic pets from a young age. At the same time, Pender Veterinary Center utilizes my training and zeal for canine and feline medicine. I appreciate and understand the strength of the human-animal bond, no matter what kind of animal that may be. Every pet is part of the family, no matter how big or small.
