About Vet

Hi! I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine (Virginia Tech). I’m a general practitioner, who sees mostly small animals (cats and dogs). My daily tasks consist of consultations, dental procedures, and surgeries.

We now live in a world in which virtual veterinary care has become available and I’m here to help you from the comfort of your home and without the stress of taking your fur babies into a clinic. I can address your concerns, triage and diagnose your pet and I will be very honest if I believe that your pet does need to be seen in person at a clinic, as there are conditions that simply can’t be assessed online. However, I will help you with anything that I can do over video.

I have multiple areas of professional interest such as: preventative medicine, dentistry, dermatology (skin issues/ allergies), new puppy/ kitten questions, behavior, hospice care, lameness, surgery, etc. Outside of veterinary medicine, I enjoy traveling, meeting new people/ cultures, going to the beach, water sports, dancing, and spending time with my partner and fur babies.

Please do not hesitate to reach out and address your concerns! I am able to prescribe medications for Virginia and Florida clients/ patients if they are needed, though I am not able to prescribe controlled medications over this platform.
