I was born and raised in Kentucky with one younger brother and one younger sister. We always had lots of pets and I was forever bringing home strays. My family never had much money so I had to put myself through veterinary school with the help of my husband, Dan.
I did my undergraduate work at the University of Cincinnati and attended veterinary school at Ohio State University, an excellent school with many dedicated professors (Go Bucks!). My goal as a veterinarian is to improve a little bit each day. I really believe this is the best job in the world for me and I want to help maintain the positive image this career has and encourage future veterinarians.
My favorite thing to do in my spare time is to read and I read many different subjects including, of course, veterinary journals so I can keep up on the latest in veterinary medicine. I am a fan of football both college and professional.
Though I really love all animals, cats and dogs are my favorites. I have seven pets: Simon, Bernie, Eliot, Parker, Lennie, Ethel and Nigel
