I was born and raised in Fairfax, VA. As the daughter of a veterinarian, I grew up surrounded by pets dozens of pets. I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Virginia. I then decided to study abroad and attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in the Caribbean. I completed my fourth and final year of vet school at Oregon State University. From there, I knew I wanted to explore the west so I accepted an internship position at CASE. Following my internship, I loved the hospital and was granted the opportunity to stay on as a staff doctor. In my spare time I love skiing, hiking, and exploring Colorado.
