I grew up traveling around the world with my parents and met a lot of weird and wonderful animals along the way. That experience sparked my interest in the way bodies work and I studied neuroscience in undergrad at Wesleyan in Connecticut and then attended Tufts Vet School. I practiced in the Boston area for 7 years and just moved to Portland with my husband and young son. I love all things furry, scaly and even slimy! Sadly, though, my husband is allergic to everything under the sun and we can’t have pets at home – I have to get my furry snuggles at work! I am especially interested in surgery, exotic animal medicine, and feline medicine. I love exploring Portland with my family, reading, dancing, and arts and crafts. I look forward to meeting you and your companions!
