I grew up in rural Vermont and began riding with my mom and sister at a young age. Horses have always been a passion of mine and I found myself, at an early age, drawn to working with young and problem horses. My interest in horses and science drew me to veterinary medicine, where I was lucky enough to have a remarkable group of teachers and mentors.
I attended Cornell University for my undergraduate and veterinary degrees, and found myself very interested in surgery and research. Following vet school I completed an internship at New England Equine Medical and Surgical Center in Dover, NH followed by an Equine Surgical Residency and a Master’s Degree at the University of Illinois. Surgery and lameness have always been keen interests of mine, particularly in the areas of emergency medicine and surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation, and advanced imaging. I also have a strong passion for podiatry and had the opportunity to participate in a 4-month farrier course with an emphasis in corrective shoeing between my degrees at Cornell. I firmly believe the mantra of “no hoof, no horse”, and I very much enjoy working alongside farriers to provide the best hoof care and management for our patients.
When I'm not in the clinic I enjoy riding my horse Mocha, running with my dog Annie, or hiking and cooking with my husband Andrew.
