I have been working at JRAH for over 10 years, and WOW, how time flies when you enjoy your work! My greatest satisfaction, as a veterinarian, comes from educating pet parents about how to care for their animals.

Outside of work, I enjoy writing music and I love to sing. I also enjoy studying languages and cultures. I love to travel. I am a mommy to a 6 year old little girl named Bella and a Bull Mastiff named Bubba.  I love to help animals and people so this is the best of both worlds for me. I love making a difference in the lives of patients and clients.

I moved here form Pennsylvania and was excited to work at James River Animal Hospital because of the variety of animals.  I have always loved dogs and cats, but now I am getting to work with snakes, birds, monkeys and such.  Dr. Hardy and Dr. Davis are amazing with their knowledge and experience, and I learn new things every day!

I've loved animals since I was 3 years old.  My passion is to continue to learn different measures used to help species diversity, but also encounter as many as humanly possible to share that love to younger generations.
