Why did you become a vet?

In the 7th grade I decided I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was able to go to my hometown veterinary clinic for career day. Somehow, my mind changed throughout high school, and I decided to go to college for a totally different career. As a junior (political science major) in college, I managed to find my way back to the veterinary field

What do you enjoy about your job?

Puppies! But seriously, I love building relationships with people and their pets. It’s an honor to be trusted with the care of someone’s animal!

Education

I earned a Political Science degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2012 (SMTTT!). After that, I worked as an admissions counselor for the University of Southern Mississippi while I finished my prerequisites for veterinary school. I received my DVM in 2017 from Mississippi State.

What do you love most about living in Memphis?

Memphis is known for good food and great music, so I’m excited to experience that!

What secret talent do you wish that you had?

I just wish that I was good at a sport, any sport!
