My love of caring for animals began at a young age. I grew up in New Albany, OH and was surrounded by many pets over the years. I always had a strong interest in science but gained more direction toward my future career after shadowing my own dog’s veterinarian in high school. I went to Wittenberg University in Springfield, OH where I graduated with a degree in Biology in 2016. I met my future husband on the first day of classes whom continued his studies in human medicine. During my undergraduate years, I fostered service dogs in training for 4 Paws for Ability; seeing the difference a dog can make in the life of a family is a large part of why I pursued a career as a veterinarian.
I attended veterinary school at Purdue University and graduated in 2020 during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. While at Purdue, I adopted my guinea pig, Nugget, who was with me through many long nights of studying. I completed an externship at Twin Maples and knew this practice was the right fit for me. Upon graduation, I was thrilled to be hired as a full-time veterinarian and to join a team of such compassionate and knowledgeable doctors. My interests in veterinary medicine include preventative care, client education, and small mammals.
During my free time I love to be outdoors and particularly enjoy camping and hiking. It is a personal goal of mine to visit every National Park in the United States. I also enjoy art, movies, and spending time with my family.
