I am a California native and grew up in San Francisco. After earning my DVM from Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine, Indiana, in 2002, I returned to California to practice medicine. After 10 years in private practice, I am still in awe of the incredible dedication and heart that members of our veterinary community bring to the table.
I enjoy my daily interactions with my clients and patients and treasure the power of the human-animal bond. My day is successful if I can improve my patients health and enhance their well-being and the quality of their lives. My priority as a veterinarian is to provide informed, compassionate, quality health care to every patient I see. I am devoted to client education and place a high priority on preventative medicine.
My philosophy is to provide my clients with sound information and choices about their pets health allowing them to make balanced and informed decisions. I believe that developing a relationship with an open dialogue with my clients helps me improve the quality of care that I can provide for their pets. I hold an intense work ethic and strong desire to continue learning that is driven by my love for animals and deep respect for the profession.
My journey to becoming a vet began in fifth grade, when our little dog was attacked and severely wounded by a larger neighbor dog, and our local veterinarian was able to save her life. I helped to nurse her back to health, and in high school I was fortunate to be able to work for the same vet.
In college I continued to work at both large and small animal veterinary clinics. I also had several other jobs before becoming a vet, including teaching college biology and zoology lab courses, working for the department of health as a clinical microbiologist, designing life-like animal organ models out of silicon for veterinary surgical training, and even bagging groceries at the supermarket to help pay for school!
After graduating from vet school, I completed a rotating internship with a focus in emergency medicine, and then practiced as an emergency veterinarian before joining Pinole Pet Hospital. I love working with dogs and cats, and I am keen to learn more about treating reptiles, birds, and small mammals, and to develop further skills in acupuncture, and other alternative medicine modalities.
I share my home with a Chihuahua, a Mexican hairless, a cat, 2 ball pythons, an Argentine horned frog, a tarantula, along with my partner and high school sweetheart who is completing her residency in �human� medicine. When not at work, I like to kayak and do crafty things like painting, drawing and sculpting.
