I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. While in school I volunteered with the Wildlife Medical Clinic, and was a member of the Integrative Medicine Club, Non-Traditional Species Club and Phi Zeta Honors Society. I am one of the founders of the Animal Well-being Club, which created a forum for discussing issues related to animal welfare and the human-animal bond. When I’m not working at St. John, I am the staff vet at the Humane Society Calumet Area, where I was extremely lucky to meet Dr. Preston.
Before becoming a vet I was a sculpture professor. Most of my artwork explores the connections between people and animals. When not working or making artwork, I love going on adventures with my wonderful husband and two most precious girls.
