About

I am a small animal emergency vet based in Whistler, BC. I have more than 10 years of experience as a veterinarian, mostly in the vet ER treating very sick and injured cats and dogs. I am skilled in small animal medicine, surgery and emergency medicine. Before focusing primarily on emergency, I worked in small animal general practice for about 3 years.

I am brand new to Vetster. I was recently injured skiing and I can't see real patients in the clinic until I am off crutches, so in the meantime I thought Vetster could be a good way to help some cute dogs and cats.

When I am not busy helping animals, I can usually be found hiking, skiing, and mountain biking. I love all animals and the planet, and I have become more and more passionate about sustainability over the years. I also run an educational YouTube channel (called Twin Trees Vet) where we teach pet parents ways to prevent emergencies, to be prepared for emergencies and how keep their pets safe.

Education and Training: -Bachelor of Sciences (BS), Biology, Stanford University -NIH Research Fellowship, Stanford University -Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), Phi Zeta Honours, Colorado State University -Emergency and Critical Care Specialty Internship and Hospitalist, Canada West Veterinary Specialists
