“With a childhood spent with farm dirt under her nails she was destined to be a veterinarian!”
I grew up on a horse farm in Newtown surrounded by all manner of dogs, cats, goats and horses. In the year after I graduated from Dickinson College with a B.A. in Political Science, I found myself working in the world of banking and finance! How did I end up wearing a suit to work every day?
Having spent my childhood with farm dirt under my nails, it was time for me to listen to my heart and get back to what I loved: caring for animals and people. The moment I made this decision, I applied to vet school. Four years later, I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine. I then completed a one-year fellowship in Transfusion Medicine at Penn and headed into private practice.
For over 17 years, I have been providing high quality veterinary care in the hospital setting for my patients and their families. My switch to mobile veterinary practice has allowed me to continue to develop professional medical relationships while offering a unique way to bring health care to pets. In fact, I will be reaching patients that, because of a lack of transportation, time or pet cooperation, may not ordinarily get routine care.
I am so happy that I get to use BOTH my head and my heart daily and allow you to keep your pets healthy!
