“I looked up every career that I could do involving animals. I would buy books at the middle school book fair about jobs with animals and veterinarians. Because I love all animals, becoming a veterinarian and being their voice was the most obvious choice even at such a young age.”

Why did you become a vet?

When I was 6 and my sister left for college to study marine biology, I thought she was going to school to become a dolphin doctor. From that moment on, I looked up every career that I could do involving animals. I would buy books at the middle school book fair about jobs with animals and veterinarians. Because I love all animals, becoming a veterinarian and being their voice was the most obvious choice even at such a young age.

What do you enjoy about your job?

I love being able to talk to clients and help give them a better understanding about what is going on with their pet so they can make the best decisions for them and their pet. Client education is one of my favorite parts of the job along with loving on all their precious babies!

What do you love most about living in Memphis?

As a born and raised Nashvillian, I am a city girl through and through, so a city was always calling me back after school! I love the culture and music that is associated with Memphis! Oh, and Target!

What secret talent do you wish that you had?

I wish I could be like Snow White. She had this special way of getting all animals to trust her instantly and could talk to them. Just like we get nervous going to the doctor, so do our pets. I think that instant trust would be so beneficial!
