“I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!” Born and raised in northern Virginia, I’m thrilled to be able to say I am living my childhood dream of being a veterinarian. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Virginia Tech, and went from being a Hokie to a Cowboy, graduating from Oklahoma State College of Veterinary Medicine. I met my husband in vet school, and we moved to Columbus, Ohio for a year where I began practicing small animal medicine and surgery. My husband and I moved to Dallas in 2016 and I am so lucky to have joined Stonebriar Veterinary Centre soon after.
After graduation, I spent a year completing additional training to become one of only a handful who are certified in veterinary acupuncture in the DFW area, and I truly enjoy being able to implement this treatment modality in everyday practice. I have a special interest in behavior medicine (partly due to my own pets!) and I completed an externship with a boarded veterinary behaviorist during my clinical year of vet school.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, as my husband and I recently welcomed a daughter to our lives. We share our home with our Australian shepherd, Belle – I have a soft spot for the herding breeds – and our mischievous cat, Ella. I enjoy photography, country music, and dog agility/training.
