I grew up here in wonderful Sonoma County. My father is a local veterinarian and the majority of my childhood and teenage years were spent at my parent's clinic. I completed my undergraduate (Animal Biology), masters (Comparative Pathology) and veterinary degrees at UC Davis (GO AGGIES!). While an undergraduate, I played the string bass in the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra. During a UCDSO tour in France, I fell in love with international travel. The following year, I spent a year studying abroad in York, UK. I was very involved with the UC Davis Orphan Kitten Project while in vet school. Fostering kittens (especially bottle babies) is a guilty pleasure.
Following my graduation from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2011, I worked as an associate veterinarian in the East Bay. I missed the slower pace of Sonoma County and decided to move home.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends and family, weekend adventures, listening to music and enjoying the outdoors. My current herd includes two kitties (Radar and Bruce) and two dogs (Dev and Batman).
