Family VetCare Location: Chandler
I was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago, IL. My whole life revolved around animals, from horseback riding to hanging out with our family dog, a black lab named Jetta. I attended the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana where I obtained both my Bachelors of Science in Animal Sciences and my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (I-L-L!). In my undergraduate career, I enjoyed riding for our school equestrian team where I competed in show jumping.
I love veterinary practice because it allows you to be involved in so many different areas of medicine. I have a true passion for dentistry, surgery, and exotic animal medicine, but my favorite part of the profession is helping our clients strengthen the bond they have with their pets.
I relocated to sunny Arizona to escape the awful Chicago winters, and although I miss my family, I sure don’t miss shoveling my car out of the snow! On my days off, I am usually found hiking with my favorite hiking partner, a Rottweiler mix named Bear. I also share my home with a cockatiel who likes to entertain by whistling and talking!
