I grew up in Palo Alto and started volunteering at Adobe when I was 15 years old and found that I enjoyed working with animals. I got a job cleaning cages during high school and also worked at Adobe as a technician over the summers while I was in undergrad at UC Davis. I graduated from UC Davis in 1991 with a B.S. in Biology and subsequently started Veterinary school at UC Davis a year later.
I joined Adobe as a full-time veterinarian in 1996 and moved back to Palo Alto. I spent 2006 thru 2017 working the emergency overnight shifts and learned a lot from the challenges of urgent care cases. I am now glad to be back to seeing appointments during more normal business hours and am rebuilding my clientele. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, jogging, and am an avid Chelsea FC and Clemson football fan. My wife and I are almost empty nesters and love to spoil our pugs.
