Since my graduation I have made it a point to gain a wide range of experience in multiple disciplines. However, I do limit my practice to small animals, in particular focusing on dogs and cats.
I have extensive experience in general practice, emergency hospitals, specialty hospitals, as well as humane societies and high volume spay/neuter work. Additionally, I operated a mobile surgical practice for over 10 years, focusing primarily on advanced orthopedics and soft tissue surgery.
My love for teaching also lead me to work in three different universities: Mexico, Bolivia, and Saint Kitts. I have also worked extensively with students in Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize. This also resulted in my working for several years with medical education companies producing educational materials for veterinarians and students.
On a more personal note, I am very active in the outdoors. I love hiking, camping, kayaking, travel and I am also a certified scuba diving instructor. I also raise chickens, turkeys, have a large green house and much of my life is focused on sustainable living.s
As you can see, I choose to challenge myself in multiple ways. But this also means I bring a lot to the table.
