Author Biography


I’ve been a practicing veterinarian in Mesa, Arizona at a small animal and exotic pet hospital. My focus while obtaining my DVM degree was in small and exotic animals. The term “small animals” in veterinary medicine is used to refer to dogs and cats. While the term “exotic animals” indicates birds, reptiles, rabbits, ferrets, rodents, and other “unusual” pets. Because I’ve kept, shown, raised and basically spent my life with all of the above types of animals I felt that this species tract was the perfect choice for me. My ultimate goal in my practice of veterinary medicine is to provide my furry, feathered, or scaly patients with the care and attention their guardians would expect for themselves. All my life, my home has been filled to overflowing with “little critters” of all types. As long as I can remember I wished to become a veterinarian and have worked towards that goal. I was fortunate enough to attend WSU where I completed my bachelors in veterinary science, graduating Magna Cum Laude. I also obtained my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from WSU where I was a member of the veterinary honors society of phi zeta and again graduated Magna Cum Laude. In 2012 I married a wonderful man who is a practicing human pharmacist. I’m fortunate that my husband shares my passion for animals and understands my dedication to patient care
