At a young age I realized that my career did not have to be something just to pay the bills and could be something that I loved and was passionate about. One of the secrets about our profession is the ability to develop lasting bonds with owners and pets. I am fortunate to experience a wide spectrum of experiences and emotions though my work, and at the end of the day, I am proud to feel that I have helped someone and their pet. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio as the youngest of 4 boys in my family. My 3 brothers and I started a landscaping business that we held onto until the youngest, myself, left to attend college at The Ohio State University. Through my undergraduate studies, I worked as a technician at a local veterinary hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Upon entering veterinary school at The Ohio State University I also worked in a research lab studying human viruses and authoring multiple scientific papers. I would consider myself a highly ambitious and driven individual that enjoys challenges and progression. Looking for my first job in the field, I was lucky enough to find University Animal Hospital, a practice that would support and encourage my passion. The values and that our practice promotes was in line with mine it was a perfect fit. I am very proud to be a member of our team at University Animal Hospital. We strive to provide our patients the gold standard in medical care and our client the best customer service.
