I was born and raised in DFW. I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian from a young age, and worked toward that goal working and volunteering at places throughout the Metroplex during my teenage years. I was blessed to be able to attend school at Texas A&M University in College Station for my undergraduate and veterinary schooling, and graduated in 2008 with a DVM degree.
My initial focus was on small and exotic animal medicine, and I worked for a general practice in Mansfield where I was able to take care of a variety of animals from dogs and cats to birds, snakes, rats, and more. I then went on to work at a hospital that not only covered general practice medicine but saw emergencies as well. It was there that I discovered my passion for emergency medicine, and made the leap to full time emergency work here at Fort Worth Animal Emergency Hospital.
I work part time and luckily get to spend the rest of my days with my two children and my small bevy of animals (oh and my husband of course!). I am part of the Arlington Master Chorale vocal performance group, and also love going to the theater (both movie and stage performances alike!). In my professional life, I am passionate about client education and explaining the whys and how’s of medicine so that the pet owners I meet can provide the best care for their animal family members at home
