About Vet

I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech. My professional interests include preventive medicine, soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, and public health.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for expanded virtual veterinary care and I am happy to help respond to this demand by reaching more people, addressing their concerns, and caring for their pets. Through thorough history-taking, coupled with a visual virtual examination, I will help get your pet started on empirical treatment and guide recommended next steps.

Outside of veterinary medicine, I really enjoy traveling, exploring different cultures, learning languages, and participating in various outdoor sports.
