After wanting to be a veterinarian from the time I was eight years old, I have been fortunate to work in the veterinary profession for 40 years. I started my career in Texas and New Mexico and then in Massachusetts. There, I was also a director of a veterinary technician program at college near Boston for several years. In Maryland, I have the pleasure of long time relationships with families and their pet members for generations in the Baltimore area. I now have a relief practice, which allows more flexibility in my schedule. Our family has had a long relationship with rescue dogs and cats, many needing special care to regain their health when they came to us. The bond I feel with my pet family members, is how I approach my patients care and their families needs.
