My love and respect for animals grew from my experiences growing up on a family farm right here in Montgomery County. I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t motivated by a desire to help or serve others in some capacity. I enjoy practicing small animal medicine the most, with a focus on applying my medical training to enhance the human animal bond.
I loved College Station so much that I graduated from Texas A&M three times, with undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Science (1990) and Veterinary Science (1995). I earned a teaching certification in Composite Science (1993) and taught Biology and Anatomy & Physiology for several years when my children were small. After graduating from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997, I spent 10 years practicing in Somerset, New Jersey.
I have three children, the oldest is the Feature Twirler at Southern Methodist University, where she hopes to graduate May 2022 in Civil and Environmental Engineering. My oldest son is training for licensing in Carpentry at Upper Bucks County Vocational School in Pennsylvania. The youngest is in high school at The Woodlands, where he is a Student Athletic Trainer. They make me happy and proud each day.
I currently have three dogs—all Shih-Tzu’s – Jack, Joliet, and Lilly – who became a part of our family Christmas Eve 2009! We also have two young cats that keep us on our toes each and every day! Needless to say, our home is busy and never a dull moment!
