Like many, I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was very young. In the fifth grade I got my very first pet dog and she started it all. Through the years my family and I acquired another dog and a cat and when we would take them to the vet I was in awe of how much they could do and how much they knew. Ever since, when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I could never really see myself doing anything else.
I was born and raised in West Chester, Ohio and went on to the University of Cincinnati to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Biology of Animals. During my time there, I worked at a small animal clinic as an assistant and founded Pre-Veterinary Society to help those like me with a passion to care for animals. I graduated from UC in 2017 and the very next day I was on a plane to start my journey through veterinary school.
I attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts. This was the study abroad experience of a lifetime and allowed me to meet people from all over the world and work with many animal species that I had never been exposed to. Becoming a veterinarian has been one of the greatest challenges but also one of the most rewarding opportunities to be a part of what I truly believe is the best profession.
I completed my clinical year at the University of Tennessee and graduated in 2020. I was lucky enough to come across Twin Maples Veterinary Hospital to work with so many intelligent and hardworking doctors and staff.
Within the field, I have special interest in general medicine and exotic animal care and have certifications in fear free techniques, basic and advanced critical care and life support, and partners for healthy pets.
Outside of veterinary medicine I am passionate about travel, learning new things, and fitness.
