Just like the old cliché, I grew up around animals and that’s one of the major reasons why I became a veterinarian. Our family had dogs, pigs and chickens when I was growing up! After my graduation in 2013, I started my career as a swine and poultry practitioner, then as a mixed animal practitioner focusing on small animals, cattle and some equine, before deciding to finally focus on small animals here at Centennial Animal Hospital. As a veterinarian, I enjoy cuddling with animals! Kidding aside, I enjoy the challenge of trying to come up with solutions as well as creating bonds with our awesome patients and clients. I also enjoy continuously learning about ways to improve my quality of medicine as I believe that to find a sense of fulfillment in life, we must push ourselves to improve every day. Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors, playing basketball, running, attending concerts or sporting events, and spending time with my family and friends!
