About Vet

I was born and raised in central Louisiana and spent a large portion of my childhood outdoors with animals to keep me company. I also lived a few years of my childhood on a farm tending to many different types of animals. It was then, around age 6, I developed my love for all animals and decided I wanted to be their doctor. I obtained my undergraduate education from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana and graduated from LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 2016. Before being accepted to LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, I worked as a registered veterinary technician for 8 years. I had the fortunate opportunity to work in many aspects of veterinary medicine including a mixed animal practice, emergency animal practice, a small animal practice, and was an instructor at a veterinary technology program. Since graduating from veterinary school, I have gained valuable experience in small and exotic animal medicine, end of life care/hospice, telehealth, and as a relief veterinarian in the Houston area. I am actively pursuing certifications as a Companion Animal Euthanasia Veterinarian and as a Fear Free Certified Practitioner. I also aspire to obtain certification in hospice and palliative care as well as acupuncture.

In my spare time, I enjoy attending horror/comic conventions, participating in medieval historical reenactment, going to renaissance festivals, attending continued education conferences, reading, watching television, and spending time with my family and little zoo. I live with my husband, Edward, my brand-new identical twin daughters, Madeleine and Adelaide, 4 dogs, 8 cats, 4 birds and 1 chinchilla. Yes, I know that is a lot of pets! I am incredibly soft hearted and have rescued many animals during her years working in veterinary medicine.
