Areas of Interest

I joined Westgate Pet Clinic in October 2023, and it has been a joy to be a part of the team here. I am proud to be work with a group that practices such quality veterinary medicine in many diverse disciplines, and to have the opportunity to learn and grow from my colleagues. I love veterinary medicine because it allows me to serve both people and pets. Pets are such an important part of our lives, and by practicing excellent veterinary medicine I am able to promote the human-animal bond and make a difference in many lives.

My special interests in veterinary medicine include dentistry and cardiology. I also love being a primary care veterinarian and being able to care for pets from puppy or kitten-hood, all the way through their senior years and help them age gracefully and comfortably. 

My husband and I live in South Minneapolis with our fluffy gray girl cat named Kevyn.

Free Time Pursuits: Outside of work I enjoy outdoor activities (summer or winter!), spending time at the gym, reading, learning new languages on Duolingo, and planning my next travel adventure.
