My career in Veterinary Medicine began in 1987 and has included experience in veterinary colleges and private practice hospitals. My special interests include practice management and fostering the human-animal bond.

My husband and I moved to Florida in 2009 and have settled nicely into the Dunedin community. After being in emergency medicine for 10 years I'm very excited to be a part of the animal hospital of Dunedin's staff. Being able to build a trusting relationships with owners and their pets is very important to me. My love of animals has lead me to not only caring for my own 3 dogs and 2 cats, but also rehabilitating abandoned squirrels. Any free time I get I spend with my four legged kids, kayaking, biking or walking on the pinellas trail.
I am a true Florida Native. I was born at Mease Dunedin & have lived in Florida my entire life. I left the Dunedin area in 2004 to purse my B.S. at the University of Florida, and returned to the area after graduating in 2009. I was rehired at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin in 2010, after an absence of 6 years, and love working here because of our wonderful staff. Recently, my domestic partner and I moved into a Condo where we do many activities like chess, glass blowing, tree climbing, frisbee, performance poetry, and our new favorite activity, dubstepping! I plan to return to university to obtain my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling and work in the field of healing people.
