My area of interest is equine reproduction, specifically assisted reproductive techniques including embryo transfer, as well as high risk pregnancies.
During my residency, I received intensive training in multiple areas of equine reproduction. The emphasis was on artificial insemination with frozen semen, embryo transfer, and management of sub- fertile mares, as well as dystocia resolution and high risk pregnancies. Stallion work focused on semen collection, cryopreservation and fertility evaluations. I participated in research projects exploring topics such as ground semen collection, novel intrauterine treatments for bacterial endometritis, and hydropic conditions in the mare.
I was raised in a suburb of Milwaukee and loved horses from an early age, despite growing up in a very non-horsey family. I was a Fine Arts student at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA and pursued a career in painting before deciding veterinary medicine was the next step. During veterinary school at the University of Wisconsin, I attended the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and received my certification in Equine Acupuncture. I completed an internship at Rhinebeck Equine in Rhinebeck, NY followed by a residency in Theriogenology at University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center.
I am so excited to be back in Wisconsin, along with my husband Fred and our dog and cat. I am an avid runner and a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan.
