I was born and raised in Kalispell and grew up loving all the Flathead Valley has to offer. I earned both a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and a Leadership Fellows Certificate from Montana State University before completing veterinary school at Oregon State University. My fiancé, Casey, is the head golf professional at Buffalo Hill Golf Club, and with both of our families still settled in the valley, I couldn’t be more excited to be back home. Outside of work, I enjoy exploring the Montana outdoors with my lab, Gracie, and our mixed breed dog, Bailey. I also love golfing, bass fishing, Bobcat Football, and finding opportunities to experience live jazz.
I look forward to sharing my passion for leadership and service with my hospital teams and community. My special interests in preventative health, animal behavior, surgery and dentistry will help me to foster the human-animal bond and promote pets’ overall wellness and longevity, allowing clients as many happy years with their pets as possible. I’m a firm believer that veterinarians and clients work as a team in pet care. I know veterinary visits can be stressful for both you and your pet, so please let me know what I can do to help you leave the hospital feeling comforted, educated, and empowered!
