I have always loved helping animals and their people, and I decided at a young age to become a veterinarian. I grew up in Marietta, Georgia, and graduated from Berry College with a Bachelor of Science degree. I graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002 and worked in the Atlanta area for 5 years.
My husband and I moved to Portland in 2007, and I have been working at Lake Grove Veterinary Clinic ever since. I enjoy internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and helping my clients take great care of their pets.
I share my home with my husband, son, and two mischievous cats. I also have a beloved retired horse, and we hope to add a dog to our family soon. When I am not at the clinic, I like to hike, play with my son, and explore the Pacific Northwest.
