I graduated from Colorado State University with a doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2000. After graduating, I completed a one year small animal internship at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in Guelph, ON. I then worked in small animal practices from 2001-2007 when I purchased Cloquet Animal Hospital. I have been working as head veterinarian and managing Cloquet Animal Hospital since 2007.


My husband Paul and I have three very active children that keep us busy. We also have two dogs, Rey and Apollo, Dottie the cat, and Pluto the goldfish. When I am not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy writing, photography, and running through the woods with my dog Apollo.
