About Vet

My professional career has been quite a journey. I grew up in Washington State, and eagerly traveled to the Caribbean to attend Ross Veterinary School. I ended at Purdue University for my clinical rotations where I received the Veterinary Clinical Sciences Award for Exceptional Clinical Proficiency.

Since then, I've been practicing Veterinary Medicine in small animals as an associate doctor, and work as a relief Veterinarian at the local emergency clinic. My specialties are general medicine, nephrology (kidneys and urinary tract) and dermatology (skin, ears, hair, nails).

Due to Indiana’s strict regulations regarding the VCPR (Veterinarian-Client-Patient-Relationship), I can't (as any other IN veterinarian) prescribe unless there is a previous in-person physical examination. Therefore, only Telehealth advice and suggestions for OTC medication are possible through here.
