I was the classic kid who dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. I remember finding a hurt bullfrog and trying to sew it up as a first grader, feeding baby birds found bitten by a cat, and raising every small pet that I could get my hands on.
My path began as a veterinary assistant, walking dogs and cleaning kennels. From there, I worked my way up to veterinary nurse in a small animal exotic hospital, while putting myself through school. I was always intrigued by exotic animals and became an avid owner of birds, reptiles and small mammals. This all eventually sparked my career in veterinary medicine as a doctor. I graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Genetics from the University of Maryland and followed with a D.V.M. from the University of Florida, 20 years ago.
But I went further. My love of rescue animals, surgery and shelter work led me to High-Volume, High-Quality spay neuter work with the Humane Alliance in North Carolina. For 5 years, I performed over 3000 surgeries, further honing my surgical skills with the ability to get those patients home faster, with less discomfort, and with reasonable cost.
I am proud to now call Roswell my home.
East Roswell Veterinary Hospital is the culmination of my career, the grand chapter of veterinary medicine for a kid that once believed in the dream of helping bullfrogs.
