Training: Canine Rehabilitation Institute
Why did you choose to become a certified canine rehabilitation therapist: My animal soul mate was a beagle named Grommet, whom I adopted from a shelter in Kentucky. Together we lived in 7 cities, finished college and veterinary school, completed an internship, and experienced all kinds of adventures. I am a better person for having had him in my life. He taught me everything I know about love, patience, responsibility and hope. Grommet became arthritic when he reached old age, but was unable to tolerate the medications that could help with his pain. My search for ways to help improve his quality of life led me to physical rehabilitation. Becoming a certified canine rehabilitation therapist has given me the ability to make a profound difference in the lives of the animals I treat and their human companions. I truly love my job.
Why do you choose to practice at VCA West Coast? I get to work with a group of individuals whose common objective is to offer the very best care to our patients. 
What do you enjoy doing outside of practicing medicine? I spend a lot of time outdoors with my spouse and our toddler. I am an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy novels. I also love to travel and hope to do so more once my child is a bit older.
