I grew up in Northern California near Sacramento. My family had a yellow lab and I have had all sorts of different reptiles such as leopard geckos, crested geckos, and a tokay gecko. As long as I can remember, I’ve only ever wanted to be a veterinarian. I received my bachelor's degree in Animal Science from Cal Poly Pomona in Southern California. I then moved to Arizona to attend Midwestern University. I graduated with my D.V.M. in June 2022. During my time at Midwestern University, I was able to complete an externship at VCA University Animal Hospital and I instantly fell in love with it.
I am interested in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, dental care and rehabilitation/physical therapy. In my free time, I love to go to the gym, play sports, be outdoors, coach, watch movies and spend time with my friends and family.
