I am from Worthington, MN and received my Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. I graduated from the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. I practiced in the St. Louis, MO area for 3 years before joining VCA Feist in 1998. I am married and have 2 children. We share our home with 3 very spoiled cats, Hootie, Scout and Elvis and a Dumbo rat, Chip. When I am not working or driving my kids to activities, I enjoy spending time outdoors, knitting, reading and yoga.
