Growing up in Pagosa Springs, a small town in southwest Colorado, I cultivated a passion for veterinary medicine at a young age. I received my B.S. in Biology-Chemistry at Point Loma Nazarene University in sunny San Diego and then I returned to CO to obtain my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine. I stumbled upon Whitefish on a road trip to Canada, where I instantly fell in love with the Flathead Valley. Nothing makes me happier than providing quality veterinary care for my patients and forming lasting relationships with the residents of Whitefish and the surrounding Flathead Valley. In my free time I enjoy running, biking, skiing, cooking, picking/eating huckleberries, gardening, and adventuring in the mountains with my Border Collie mix, Buddy.
