I was born in beautiful Arizona and was practically raised in a veterinary hospital! As a child, I loved going to work with my father (also a veterinarian), and my passion for people and their pets has grown ever since. I attended Arizona State University for my undergraduate degree, and received my DVM from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). I then completed a Small Animal Medicine and Surgery internship at Kansas State University, where I received advanced training in orthopedic/soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, and dentistry. I joined Family VetCare in June 2009.
Outside of the hospital, I enjoy outdoor sports and photography, but consider my wife and two daughters the greatest joy of all!
