I am an Oregon native, growing up in Bend, Oregon. I have always felt a connection with animals, and have always known I wanted to be a veterinarian since childhood. I am a graduate of Oregon State School of Veterinary Medicine. It is there where I developed a passion for the science of clinical pathology to diagnose diseases and steer us to effective treatments.
I am excited to trade in the rains of Oregon for the sunshine of Nevada. This excitement is in part to my absolute love of the outdoors. Whether it is trail running, biking, or hiking with my canine companion, Merlin (my majestic whippet), I spend most I my free time in the great outdoors. I revel in rock climbing, so if you are ever at Red Rock look up and you just might see me. I am looking forward to becoming a part of the Las Vegas community and more so a member of the Mountain Vista team.
