I have been a Veterinarian at VCA Pahle Animal Hospital since September 2011. The best part of my job is getting to interact with the patients and their families. Also, the wonderful staff here at Pahle.
I was born in Milwaukee, WI and graduated from the vet school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My favorite subject was animal behavior.
My hobbies away from the hospital are reading, biking, swimming, traveling, spending time with my 9-year-old god-daughter, Jocelyn, and skiing.
I have one older brother, Ken, who is an author and teaches English Composition to college freshman. My mom, Barb, is a speaker and author. My father, Charlie, is a retired school teacher.
My favorite pet is my 15-year-old orange tabby named Tigger. He is the sweetest cat I've ever owned and likes to sleep on my head at night. I also have a second kitty named Farley.
If I could meet anyone, living or dead, it would be my grandfather on my dad's side because he died of heart disease before I was born.
My favorite holiday is Christmas because it is the only holiday that my entire family is together to celebrate including relatives from Seattle, New Orleans and Santa Barbara, CA.
