I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and always knew I wanted to pursue a career that involved animals. I began working as a kennel attendant at a local clinic where I fell in love with medicine. From there I worked as a technician assistant at various ER and GP hospitals. I attended the University of Missouri and studied biochemistry before starting veterinary school in 2018. My favorite activity in college was helping raise mobility and public access service dogs for a non-profit organization called CHAMP. My passions within veterinary medicine include client education, preventative medicine and diagnostic radiology. In my free time you can find me watching documentaries, hiking with my pup, Sampson, or reading non-fiction!
