I am an Orange County native who developed a love for animals by watching countless hours of Animal Planet at an early age. I volunteered at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific for four years, and soon after began working at an animal hospital. It was there where I truly discovered my passion for veterinary medicine.

I received a BS in Animal Science from UC Davis and then moved to the beautiful (but rainy) Pacific Northwest where I earned my DVM degree from the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University. My special interests include diagnostic imaging, dentistry, nutrition, and rehabilitation.

When I am not at work, you can find me on the pickleball court or in my kitchen, as I love to cook and bake. I also keep active by constantly entertaining Koa, my mischievous but adorable Golden Retriever. My favorite part of being a veterinarian (besides working with animals) is the privilege of meeting and working with many many incredible, dedicated, and loving owners of my patients.
