After receiving my DVM degree from the University of California, Davis, I completed a year-long internship at Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital in California, where I focused on small animal surgery and medicine. Following my internship, I returned to the University of California at Davis for a 3-year small animal surgery residency. Upon concluding that intense residency and attaining ACVS board certification, I worked one year as staff surgeon at a Santa Cruz, California referral practice, after which I joined a multi-specialty practice in Portland, Oregon where I was an associate surgeon for more than three years. I was then invited to work with Cornell University Veterinary Specialists at their multi-specialty private/academic hybrid advanced care facility in New England, where I had a central role in creating, establishing and operating the hospital’s surgery department. Though the work was rewarding, my family and I underestimated our deep ties to and affection for the Pacific Northwest area, and we returned to Portland in 2012.

My surgical interests and experience include all aspects of orthopedic and soft-tissue surgery as well as neurosurgery. I get immense satisfaction from my profession, but veterinary medicine is not all that I am about. After three years of military service and long before veterinary school, I lived in Europe for close to two years and spent a full year traveling in Asia. I’ve also explored Western and Eastern Europe, North, South and Central America. I enjoy camping, long-distance running, gardening, and reading. Most of all, I cherish time spent with my human and animal family.
