I received my veterinary degree in 2003 from Oregon State University and joined the staff at Orchard Hills Animal Hospital in July 2008. My goal as a veterinarian is to make my patients as comfortable and healthy as they can be throughout their entire lives, from babyhood through the geriatric years. I am continually looking for new and innovative ways to improve my practice everyday. In particular, I enjoy internal medicine, pain management and acupuncture.
Outside of work, I enjoy indoor and outdoor gardening, cycling, traveling, and exploring Portland’s dining scene when I can. I currently share a house with three humane society kitties, Olive, Pickle and Clementine, and my wonderful and creative partner, Paul.
