Best Part of My Job:

I love seeing really sick pets make a rapid recovery (such as with many toxicities, anaphylaxis, or other similar cases) and be reunited with their pet parent. I also enjoy connecting with people. I care a lot, and being able to work closely with the pet parent clients is incredibly rewarding. 

Special Talent:

I enjoy the pressure and also the immediate reward of helping pets with severe conditions where I must act quickly. Seeing a pet recover is the best thing ever!

One Thing People May Not Know About Me:

I grew up in Orange County and was a pretty good student-athlete. I played soccer with one of the most famous professional players out there today – I’ll let you guess who it is!

What You’ll Find Me Doing in My Free Time:

Chasing around after my two little boys. We enjoy our outdoor time walking our dog Scully, exploring all the amazing local parks, riding bikes, or going to the mountains for nature and hikes.
