I grew up in Minneapolis and attended both undergraduate and veterinary school at the University of Minnesota. My husband and I moved to Arizona in 2008 and have lived in Mesa for the past 14 years. My husband and I have 7 cats and 2 dogs, most of whom were rescued during my time as a veterinarian over the past decade. I have worked primarily in general practice with companion animals, but have also worked as an emergency veterinarian. I have special interests in dentistry and soft tissue surgery. When I am not at work I enjoy reading, watching scary movies, and snuggling with my 4 legged kids.
