From a young age, I have always known that I wanted a career in the veterinary field. Growing up, I convinced my parents to adopt several stray cats that were wandering our neighborhood. I got my first horse when I was 10, and worked to foster, rehabilitate, and rehome over a dozen horses rescued from slaughter pens during my teenage years, until I adopted a wild Mustang mare and foal from the Bureau of Land Management. During and after high school, I worked in a small animal clinic in Hagerstown and then worked for the Humane Society of Washington County, where I also fostered countless animals.
Since graduating from Wilson College in 2014, I have been privileged to work with such a compassionate and progressive hospital. I look forward to many more years to come. Currently, I live in Martinsburg, WV with my husband, Jason, and our boys Nick and Tristan. We share our home with our dog: Madeline, our cats: Esme and Johnny Blaze and regular stray/feral “foster” kittens from our neighborhood. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, and working to TNR the feral cat population in our neighborhood.
