I was born as a first generation American in New Jersey, and moved to Palo Alto at a young age. As it turns out, I brought my childhood dog to Adobe Animal Hospital after she got bit by a larger dog. I have always loved animals, but after experiencing the excellent care that was given to my beloved dog Kaya, I was inspired to become a veterinarian so one day I could help others too.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Cellular & Molecular Biology at Cal Poly Humboldt in 2017. I then spent 2 years doing research at Stanford University School of Medicine, where I assisted in developing novel treatments for genetic diseases in children and co-authored two papers. My passion for clinical medicine was solidified after volunteering in veterinary clinics in the area, and I decided to chase my childhood dream of becoming an animal doctor.

My dreams became a reality after completing 4 amazing years studying at the Royal Veterinary College in London, UK. During that time, I had the privilege of traveling to different countries and got to volunteer in wildlife centers and at spay and neuter clinics for stray animals. I could not be more thrilled to have come full circle, and to be back working at the very place that started it all. I look forward to meeting you and helping care for your precious pets, and to continue the tradition of providing excellent care at Adobe.

In my free time I enjoy teaching and performing aerial acrobatics, figure skating, playing music with my partner, and snowboarding. I come from a very international family and I love traveling the world, learning other languages, and experiencing different cultures.
