About Vet

Growing up on Long Island, I was the kid taking care of the baby bird that fell from the nest, rescuing the turtles from the road, walking the neighbors’ dogs for fun, volunteering to clean cages at the shelter. I moved to North Carolina to attend Guilford College in Greensboro and have lived in the Triangle since graduating from Guilford. I have been a small animal veterinarian since 1997 after graduating from NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine. I am one of fewer than 200 veterinarians worldwide, who have become a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian, after completing an 18 month intensive program. I am married and have two growing boys, two dogs & one cat. Our Australian Cattle Dog puppy, Luna Blu, was rescued and re-homed to us as a result of ingesting rat bait in Tennessee. She is smart and high energy! Our cat, Ginevra aka Ginny Weasley (she is a ginger), was bottle fed by myself and my husband, and she is full of personality. Our most recent addition is an adult Frenchie rescue, who we name Phineas as he didn't know his prior name nor was he potty trained :-( But he is a smart and good fellow and is now living the bestest life. As a small animal veterinarian, I am very fortunate to have a career that I enjoy. Positively impacting the lives of my clients and their pets gives me a great feeling of satisfaction. I take great pleasure in the relationships that I have built serving families and their pets. As an in-home end-of-life care and hospice veterinarian since 2011. I formerly was a franchise owner with Lap of Love but currently own Gentle Journey Mobile In-Home Veterinary Hospice & Euthanasia Care in the Triangle of North Carolina. I am honored to serve my clients in a way that eases their grief and their pet’s life as peacefully as possible. If the pet can be kept comfortable and his or her quality of life maintained through nursing care and pain management, then pet owners may be able to extend the quality time they have with their cherished companions. Every being deserves a comfortable end. Having the pet at home enables the animal maximum comfort, hospice care allows the pet to enjoy the last days of life in familiar surroundings in the company of loved ones, and it allows the family to have more time with their pet and prepare for the loss of this beloved family member.
