I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian around the age of 5 after my first visit to Sea World. My passion for helping animals, love for science, and fascination with medicine has continued to make a career in veterinary medicine the perfect fit for me. The human-animal bond is something I grew up understanding with my best friend, a yellow lab named Maggie.
I was born in Illinois but grew up in Arizona. I earned my BS in Veterinary Science from the University of Arizona (BEAR DOWN!) and then went on to complete my DVM at Colorado State University.
