I have wanted to be a veterinarian since my mother defined the word as "dog doctor" when I was 6 years old. Since high school, I have volunteered and worked as a technician in several veterinary clinics near Florence KY, where I grew up. I was a dog groomer while attending Thomas More College, where I received my bachelor's degree in biology and associate's degree in chemistry. I also worked for a summer at the Cincinnati Zoo. I attended veterinary school at Auburn University, and joined the Grady Veterinary Hospital family in 2016. I have special interests in emergency medicine and soft tissue surgery. I currently live in Florence with my boyfriend Kevin and two feline fur babies, Koda and Beau. We enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, reading, and traveling in our spare time.
