My passion for veterinary medicine began when I was a child. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to grow up working in my local veterinary hospital, where I spent afternoons, weekends, and summers helping treat sick dogs and cats. From those early years, I knew the rest of my life would be dedicated to caring for people and their beloved pets. I received my undergraduate degree in Animal Science from Cal Poly State University in SLO, then went on to earn my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences, graduating with Highest Honors.
I love all aspects of veterinary medicine but have a particular interest in preventative health, dermatology, dentistry, and surgery. I reside locally with my husband David, and our daughter Nadia. We enjoy hiking, gardening, and visiting independent bookstores. We decided to launch VetMobile in order to offer my patients high quality veterinary care in the comfort of their own homes.
My first introduction to veterinary medicine occurred when I was reading All Creatures Great and Small by a British veterinarian, James Herriot. I was ten years old and absolutely fascinated. Of course, I dreamt of becoming a veterinarian. I did not, but I met one three decades later and she thought it would be a good idea to marry me.
My professional background is in Finance and I take care of all things business-related. My college education consists of an undergraduate degree from SFSU (Business and Economics) and an MBA from Saint Mary’s College of California (Finance).
I am the most junior member of our team and have been listening to the sounds of dogs and cats visiting the veterinary hospital since taking up residence in my mommy’s belly. I am known as The Snuggler around here and I give a mean cuddle when the need arises!
