When I was five, we got a golden retriever puppy and I accompanied my mom to his first vet visit. While the doctor was examining him, I asked if this is what the doctor did for a living. He replied that yes, he was a veterinarian, which is a doctor that cares for animals. I then turned to my mom and told her I was going to be a vet when I grow up. I never wavered from that decision. I was born in Tyler, Texas but moved to Atlanta, Georgia when I was 12. I attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts and completed my clinical year at Auburn University in Alabama. While at Auburn, I met my husband in the emergency room at the local (human) hospital. After graduating from vet school I followed my husband to Houston, Texas which is where I lived and practiced for nine years. It was in Houston that I developed an appreciation for the fast-paced world of emergency medicine as well as slower-paced, methodical work of rehab. In the beginning of 2018, I followed my husband again to the South Bay Area of California. I was drawn to Adobe because of their team approach to medicine and how dedicated everyone was, not only to the patients and clients, but also to each other. When I’m not at work, I’m probably training for my next marathon, hiking, or camping. I also enjoy reading, painting, traveling, and pretending like I know what I’m doing when wine tasting.
