Like many veterinarians, I have always had a tremendous love of animals and fascination for medicine and science. I knew I wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine from a very young age. I am originally from Mount Pearl NL, and completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology at Memorial University. I received my DVM from the Atlantic Veterinary College on Prince Edward Island. My special interests include working with wildlife and exotics, as well as companion animal behavioural medicine. Additionally, I am currently completing my certification in veterinary acupuncture.
In my spare time, I love reading, and hiking the East Coast Trail with my Border Collie, Mindy. I also have two cats, Emmie and Paul, as well as a Newfoundland Pony named Gunner.
