I grew up in central Wisconsin with my parents, younger sister, and various pets. Instead of dolls, I played with Breyer horses, staging my own shows and vet care! Even as a little girl, I knew that I wanted to be a vet. To further my dream, I attended Augustana College, a liberal arts school in Rock Island, IL, majoring in Biology and minoring in Psychology. I then attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Veterinary Medicine for my doctorate, graduating in 2006.
It was a long and hard four years, but all worth it as I now care for your four-legged family members. My goal is to help you provide the best care that you can for them including prevention, surgery, and treatment to ensure a happy and healthy life. Education plays a large part in your decision making and I am always happy to answer questions. I am also Fear Free Certified!
In my free time, I enjoy being with my husband, two sons, and our two dogs, Crycket and Gryffin, as well as extended family and friends.
Thank you for allowing me to help keep your pets in good health. I look forward to seeing them and you!
