I was born and raised in Lake Orion, Michigan. I have always wanted to be a veterinarian but also developed an appreciation for exotic animals during undergraduate school at Michigan State University. I graduated with a BS in zoology and worked with a variety of exotic veterinarians prior to enrolling in the Michigan State school of Veterinary Science. Since graduating, I worked at the Huron valley humane society in Ann Arbor, MI and moved down to sunny Florida in January to focus more on exotic animal treatment. I enjoy working with dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, and reptiles. I have been fortunate to work with veterinarians in zoos, general practice, and even the wildlife rehabilitation center at CROW on Sanibel Island, FL. When I have time away from work, I like to eat good food, travel, spend time with my girlfriend, and enjoy Floridas great outdoors.
