Emergency Veterinarian DVM

I am an LA native and I am really excited to be moving back to Southern California. I completed my bachelor's degree in Animal Science at UC Davis and recently graduated with my DVM from the University of Sydney. I have an interest in surgery, emergency medicine and radiology. 

I acquired both of my animals through veterinary school—my cat, Kousah, has emigrated with me from Australia and my dog, Lincoln, was rescued from the spay and neuter program at Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee.

COVID took me on an adventure to complete my DVM degree—I spent 9 months of the two COVID-impacted years in Tennessee/Kentucky/Virginia at LMU. 

My husband and I have enjoyed travelling all over the United States and internationally over the last 4 years, but we are excited to finally live in one place for the foreseeable future.
