Im a native Floridian that spent 10 years in the Midwest (Muncie, IN and Chicago, IL) enjoying the changing seasons, winter coats, and endless cornfields. I returned to pursue a veterinary career, which is really just a continuation of all the animal-related jobs I held previously (dog walker, pet sitter, pet store employee). I went to veterinary school at the wonderful University of Florida, putting that English major and linguistics Masters degree to excellent use, and am sorry to say that I never went to a football game my entire time there. Im very excited to have joined the excellent team at Longwood Veterinary Clinic where I look forward to coming to work and have the opportunity to practice high-quality medicine. LVC encourages a collaborative approach among the veterinarians when dealing with complicated cases, and Im fortunate to work with a fantastic group of people. Ive never lived in the Orlando area before and am eager to find all the great vegetarian-friendly restaurants. Right now I have three cats, a dog, and a Senegal parrot.
