  • Profile

I grew up in a rural area in West Virginia. When I was a kid, animals were my best buddies & playmates: cats and dogs, as well as horses, ducks, frogs, and crayfish. My love for animals brought me to the University of GA, from which I graduated in 1991. My goal is to help clients help their pets live their best and healthiest life. I strive to stay current on recent veterinary medicine improvements to best treat my patients. This includes preventive medicine (vaccinations, weight control, parasite prevention etc.) as well as internal medicine (when we treat an actual condition).

I have 20-plus years of experience as a vet. Before Nazareth, I had practiced at several clinics in the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos. When I meet a new patient, I go over the past medical history and perform a physical exam so that the owner and I can create an individualized plan to provide the best care for that particular pet. As a previously Fear Free certified veterinarian, I strive to decrease fear, anxiety, and stress in my patients – and hopefully their owners.

I have a pug mix (Bella) and two furry felines. I am a mountain ultra-runner, meaning I run races over 26 miles (i.e. longer than a marathon), and up to 100 miles, in mountainous areas. I also enjoy macrame, biking, paddle boarding, and camping.
