Best Part of My Job:
I’d have to say my patients! A close second is collaborating with my colleagues to ensure we deliver the best outcome for each pet. We have an incredibly talented team at Rise in nearly every discipline which makes my job fun and rewarding.
In addition to my superpower of staying calm and helping my team stay calm, I really enjoy taking complex topics and translating them into words my client understand.
I also have a passion for pathophysiology, or how organ systems function together, and have a huge interest in treating shock, trauma, sepsis, transfusion therapy, acid/base physiology and electrolyte disorders.
One Thing People May Not Know About Me:
I have synesthesia, which means I associate colors with numbers. It definitely is as cool as it sounds!
What You’ll Find Me Doing in My Free Time:
I enjoy painting, cooking and of course eating all the tasty cuisine that Southern California has to offer.
My Pet Family Includes:
A tri-pawed pittie named Tater and my cats, Watson & Cricket.
