I obtained my B.S. in biology and a minor in mathematics from the University of Puget Sound. In 2001, I graduated from the Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine. During veterinary school, I met my husband Bob, an equine veterinarian at LaSalle Equine Clinic in Kalispell. Upon graduation, we moved to his home state of Ohio, where we practiced for 5 years. Longing for the west coast lifestyle and the mountains, we relocated to Whitefish in 2006 with our twins, Mason and Olivia, and our pets. In my free time, I enjoy watching my children in their athletic events, practicing yoga, or trail running, hiking, and cross-country skiing with my family and dog in the beautiful outdoors. I am intrigued by all aspects of veterinary medicine, but have special interests in ophthalmology, feline medicine, diagnostic ultrasound, and soft tissue surgery.
