I am a native of Nederland and graduate of Nederland High School. I began working in veterinary clinics locally at the age of 16. After high school, I earned my BS in Biomedical Science and MS degree in Poultry Science from Texas A&M University. I attended veterinary school at Ross University on the beautiful island of St. Kitts, then completed my final clinical year at the University of Florida. After graduating veterinary school in 2005, I worked for two years as a small animal practitioner on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. I returned to the Caribbean and spent six years teaching anatomy, as well as exotic animal medicine and husbandry at my alma mater, Ross University, where I also met my husband. While at Ross, I served on the veterinary school admissions committee and academic review board. I was involved in a number of research projects including working with the St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network and the Shore Bird Monitoring Group, and have numerous publications in scientific journals. I returned to Texas in 2014, and have since been doing relief, part time and full time work in a variety of animal hospitals in Jasper, Orange, Winnie, Baytown and the Houston area. I began working at the Animal Hospital of Mid County in April of 2017, and plan to make this my permanent home. I have two children and two step children, three cats, and two dogs including a retired racing Greyhound. When we are not working, or involved in sports with the children, you can find us relaxing at home in our swimming pool. At work I enjoy soft tissue surgery, dermatology, and nutrition. I look forward to meeting and treating your fur babies.
