Growing up in San Diego, I always had a natural passion for animals and kept as many pets as my parents would allow. By the time I started completing animal-care internships during my schooling, my mind was made up—a career in the world of veterinary medicine was my true calling!
I moved to Los Angeles to attend California Polytechnic Institute in Pomona, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in animal health science and completed four separate internships. After serving at a local clinic for a year, I moved back home to San Diego and joined the SeaCoast Veterinary Group team after a former employer referred my to the hospital.
Medically, I enjoy radiography, surgery, drawing blood, and running lab work. Most of all, I love improving pets’ quality of life in whatever way I can and forming relationships with the area’s animal owners.
Outside of my interests in veterinary medicine, I enjoy playing indoor soccer, going to the gym, attending wine tastings, and horseback riding. My fiancé, C.J. and I, live with a pair of dogs named Bailey and Toby, a cat named Frank, and two leopard geckos, Betty and Fluffy.
