I have always been a New England girl at heart, and grew up in beautiful southern Maine. After high school, I went on to graduate with a BS degree in Animal/Veterinary Science from the University of Maine, Orono, in 1996. I then got my wish and was accepted into the Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine. I completed my veterinary degree in May of 2000, and began my veterinary career in the gorgeous and peaceful Berkshires of Massachusetts and Connecticut. I still reside there with my seven-year-old little boy and my two-year-old mini schnauzer named Mr. Pickles.
