I moved to Colorado Springs from north Mississippi in the fall and have been enjoying it since. At home I have two dogs, Louis the terrier and Hiro the corgi they have both adapted from the heat of the south to loving the mountain snow. Out of the clinic I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, seeing concerts and spending time at home relaxing. My favorite part of veterinary medicine is meeting clients and being able to help them by caring for their furry family members.read more
