About Vet

I have been practicing veterinary medicine full time for almost three decades, mostly in rural areas. My pragmatic AND creative solution driven support is extensive with a broad 'toolbox'. My love is holistic and functional medicine and getting to root cause. I have certifications in acupuncture, chiropractic, and medical ozone therapy, utilize and have an awesome donor dog for microbiome restorative therapy (fecal transplants). I have an insatiable love of learning and love of nature, with over 10,000 miles of competition in equine endurance.
