Degree in Science in Clinical Laboratory Science from the University of Louisville. Until now, my professional career has been in human patient care and laboratory medicine. My passion in life has always been animals. I have worked on farms, volunteered in veterinary clinics and the Louisville zoo. My career change to the veterinary medicine field is driven by my love and compassion for animals and a continuing interest in the biological sciences and medicine. I enjoy spending time with my daughter, husband and our furry kids – four dogs, two cats, a guinea pig and a turtle, all rescues.
