About Vet

Hello, I am a small animal vet with 25 years of experience.

After graduating from the University of Georgia in 1998, I practiced veterinary medicine in the Northern Virginia area. I married into the Air Force, so frequent military moves allowed me to become a relief veterinarian in Louisiana, Virginia, Washington State, and Tennessee. I have worked in general practice, emergency, surgery, and shelter medicine, plus I have experience with small farms, including dairy cows, beef cows, chickens, sheep, goats, ducks and pigs.

I primarily see cats and dogs, with emphasis on dermatology, urgent care triage, general medicine and common illnesses, wellness planning and nutrition, pediatrics, geriatrics, and behavior consultations. I can offer advice on hobby farm animal care, welfare and wellness.

I am licensed in Washington, Virginia and Tennessee. The law allows prescriptions in Virginia and Washington based on establishing a veterinary-client-patient relationship and my best clinical judgment.

The most important component of effective veterinary care is communication and working as a team with the pet owner. I hope to help you navigate your pet challenges with pertinent information and quality medicine.
