I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, where I developed an intense curiosity about animals and science that would last a lifetime and lead me to the profession that I love as a veterinarian. I attended Auburn University for undergraduate studies. During this time I proudly served as an Auburn Cheerleader War Eagle!! I continued studying for my veterinary degree at Auburn, allowing me to spend four more years in my adopted hometown. My special interests in veterinary medicine include dermatology, ophthalmology and cardiology, as well as diagnostic imaging, clinical pathology and cytology.I live in Hyde Park with my girlfriend Stephanie and our five dogs: Sutton (Greyhound), Maggie (German Shorthaired Pointer), Sadie (Black Lab), Jase (Chihuahua) and Lizzy (Cairn Terrier). In my spare time I enjoy going to the beach in the Florida Panhandle, stand-up paddleboarding, golfing, gardening, cooking and cheering on my Auburn Tigers in any sport.
