I grew up in Illinois about an hour west of Chicago. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology from Michigan State University in 2008 and then went to live in Boston and worked at a large veterinary referral center. There I discovered my passion for veterinary medicine. While working, I obtained my Associate’s Degree in Veterinary Technology and became a Certified Veterinary Technician in 2010. I had a desire to keep doing more so I went back to school and graduated with my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Minnesota of 2016.
After graduation, I began my career as an Emergency Veterinarian. I love the work but I have been missing the long term veterinarian-client-patient bond that comes with working in general practice and helping a patient grow and be healthy from young to old. I was lucky enough to find a position at Woodlake Veterinary Hospital that will help fill this hole for me.
I live in Woodbury with my husband, toddler, twin baby girls, dog, two cats, two birds and two fish tanks. I like to keep busy! In my free time, I like to read and clean my house. As a family, we enjoy camping and hiking/walking the trails around our house. We also like traveling and look forward to being able to do more of this as our girls grow.
