I was raised in California and animals were a big part of my life. I declared my intention to be a veterinarian at 8 yrs old.
I went to UC Davis for my undergraduate work. Then spent 4 years living in Los Angeles working in the field – as kennel attendant, veterinary assistant, licensed technician, before starting veterinary school at Ross University (before it was accredited). I spent my senior year at Kansas State and fulfilled by ECFVG requirement by doing an extra year at Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine. From there I moved to Long Island, NY for a 15 month, private practice internship in avian/exotic pet medicine.
Three months after moving to NY I met my late husband in a laundromat. Needing neutral territory(and a lower cost of living) we settled into Virgnia where I spent 1.5 years in emergency medicine, 4 years as an associate in a small animal/avian/exotic practice, and 10 years as a relief veterinarian. Along the way I have been blessed with two daughters (16, 10) and a son (7) and countless fur babies. I have also been a homeschooling mama for the last 8 years. I lost my husband to cancer in June of 2018.
I am excited to join the Mountain View family as my children and I start the next chapter in our lives.
I look forward to serving all the furred, fuzzy, feathered, and scaley patients as welling as growing professionally in the realms of holistic medicine.
