I graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelors in Animal Science in 1998 and then my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2002. My husband and I moved to Las Vegas so that he could finish his college degree. After he graduated in 2006, we moved to the Austin area, and I went to work at a wonderful hospital. After working there for over a decade and serving as the Medical Director for five years, I left to pursue my dream of owning my own practice…Whitestone Animal Hospital.
My favorite part of working in this profession is getting to know my clients and their pets. Watching families and pets grow is so rewarding. I have a passion for dentistry and preventative care. I do love complicated internal medicine cases, pain management, and infectious disease workups. I earned my certification to practice acupuncture from Colorado State University in 2004, and I’m currently taking courses in herbal medicine. I am Fear Free Certified and a member of the Association of Feline Practitioners. I also do work for the Central Texas Rat Rescue.
When not at work, my husband Matt and I enjoy spending time with our three kids Donovan, Cassidy, and Brinley. We also enjoy our animal family that includes 2 Mini-Aussies, two cats, three prairie dogs, a dozen fish, two hermit crabs, two pot belly pigs, and a dozen chickens.
When I do get a break from kid activities and the veterinary world, you can find me on my yoga mat at Flow Yoga here in Cedar Park, camping or hiking a trail.
