I graduated from Appalachian State University and earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, I joined a large 24-hour veterinary hospital in Reidsville, North Carolina. During this time, I discovered my passion for emergency and critical care medicine and enjoyed my role as the Director of Emergency Services for five years.
I moved back to my hometown of Chapel Hill and embraced a different approach to helping dogs and cats with preventive medicine, dentistry, and surgery. In 2015 I opened Meadowmont Animal Hospital in Chapel Hill and have greatly enjoyed the relationships I develop with each patient, their families, and the surrounding community.
My veterinary interests include surgery, dentistry, and of course, emergencies. My community interests include working with assistance dogs from Ears Eyes Nose Paws and supporting local animal rescue groups and shelters.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. I love gardening, hiking, listening to my husband play music, and teaching my girls to ride horses. We often visit family in the mountains and beaches of North Carolina.
Our family has a sweet Labrador retriever named Max from Ears Eyes Nose Paws, super stalker cat Nikki that we adopted from Orange County Animal Services, and an American Quarter Horse named Ray.
