Why did you become a vet?

There has never been a time I did not want to be a vet. I have had a love of animals from a very young age and would always go around examining all of my stuffed animals with my doctorโ€™s kit. I have also always had a love of solving puzzles. This profession allows me to combine my love of each, all while improving the lives of animals!

What do you enjoy about your job?

I love getting the chance to advocate for animals as well as form relationships with each pet and their owner. It is such a joy getting to care for a new puppy or kitten and then get the chance to follow their care through all stages of life. There is nothing like the bond between a pet and their owner and I love getting to be a small part of that bond!

Education

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University, College of Veterinary Medicine
Bachelor of Science in Animal and Dairy Science at Mississippi State University

What do you love most about living in Memphis?

It is so nice to be back home with my family! Memphis has so much to offer with a variety of food and activities, including the zoo and Shelby Farms. I especially love being back near the Orpheum to enjoy musical theatre productions.

What secret talent do you wish that you had?

There are so many things I wish I could do! I really wish I had artistic ability. I would love to be able to draw, paint, or craft.
