About Vet

Welcome! I have 3 decades of experience working with dogs & cats, and occasionally other small mammals, reptiles & birds. I enjoy giving advice and helping pet owners.

I currently practice in Nashville, TN, and my special interests are in optimizing quality of life, at every stage; wellness/preventative care; general health education; and hospice/palliative care.

As an animal RN, I am unable to diagnose or prescribe medication. I offer tele-health and triage advice only.

My veterinary technical & nursing experience is evenly split between Family/Primary and Specialty Practice, specifically emergency, critical care, neurology, orthopedics, internal medicine, wildlife rehabilitation, and hospice. I've practiced Veterinary Telehealth since March 2020.

I earned an AAS in Veterinary Technology from Oklahoma State University; and a BA in Letters from the University of Oklahoma.

I also completed externships in Emergency Nursing at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, MA; Intensive Care Nursing at the Boren Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Stillwater, OK; and Environmental Enrichment Therapy at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, OKC, OK.

When not practicing veterinary nursing, I have fun with side gigs in photography, music production, and graphic design. I enjoy vegetarian cooking, gardening, spending time outdoors, travel, and improving my chess game. My Nashville home is filled with houseplants, music, garden-to-table cooking, the subtle struggles of a new book-writing effort, and my few, cherished pets.
