Family VetCare Location: Mesa
I grew up in South Dakota and found so much happiness in horseback riding and loving on the local shelter animals. I first experienced the transforming power of the human-animal bond when I adopted my first dog, a red Border Collie named Rosie. To this day, my greatest joy in being a veterinarian is the opportunity to help foster the same beautiful relationships between pets and their people. My primary professional interest is delivering fear-free veterinary care, including preventive and internal medicine.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University while also competing as a NCAA cross country/track and field student-athlete. Four years of the gorgeous Rocky Mountains wasn’t enough for me, so I stayed at CSU to also complete my DVM degree. After graduation, I was ready for a brand-new adventure and found my way to Arizona, where I have loved being closer to my family and being a member of the brilliant and compassionate Family VetCare team!
Outside of the hospital, I have a blast exploring new running and hiking trails, camping and ATVing with my husband, painting (animals are my favorite subjects!), and spoiling my adorable pet rats, Mia and Bowie.
