I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine and I earned the title of Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA) from the Chi Institute in Florida. I have strong professional interests in the human-animal bond, animal behavior, surgery, pain management, as well as exotic animal medicine. When I’m not at the clinic, I’m likely attending continuing education, traveling with my husband, indulging my photography habit, or spending time with my own two cats and turtle.

I grew up in the Milwaukee area, and have strong ties to this community. Before vet school, I volunteered at the Elm-Brook Humane Society, and worked at the Wisconsin Humane Society as well as the Animal Emergency Center (now Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists).
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in May 2011. After graduation, I was happy to return back to the Milwaukee area to practice medicine.
I joined the team at Advanced Animal Hospital in April 2012. My specific interests include surgery, behavior, dermatology, and ophthalmology. I live with my partner, Katie, as well as 2 cats (Data and Phoebe), a guinea pig (Newton), and a ball python (Orion). In my free time, I enjoy gardening, painting, watching the Packers, and spending time with family. I look forward to seeing you and your pet!
