Why did you become a vet?
I don’t remember exactly when I decided to be a vet but I have a poster that my mom saved from my Kindergarten class where I’d listed what I wanted to be when I grew up. Top of the list was veterinarian (followed closely by astronaut and circus performer) so it must have crossed my mind pretty early on.

What do you love most about living in Memphis?
I’ve really come to love all the Memphis in May festivities. Despite the rain that usually accompanies them, you just can’t beat the culture and the feel of community you get at those sorts of events. Music Fest has been my favorite so far with BBQ Fest coming in a close second.
What secret talent do you wish that you had?
I wish that I could sing karaoke exceptionally well. Don’t get me wrong, I’m passable (I think) and no one boos me, but I’ve always wished that I could step up and just belt out a song and have people be suitably impressed. But alas, despite all my shower practice I am still far from a show-stopper.
