grew up in a small town in central Kansas. I have always enjoyed outdoor activities including athletic sports, fishing, and hunting. After graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University, I moved to Texas and started working in a busy mixed animal practice in Quitman. My wife, Kathy Carlson, started working here at Shelley Drive in the spring of 1986 and I joined her here in the summer of 1989. I enjoy working here at Shelley Drive. We work hard to offer the best veterinary medicine has for our patients. We are also blessed to have great clients who want the best for their four-legged family members.
