I was born in Japan and moved to the Seattle area with my family when I was 4 years old. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. Shortly after I pursued my lifelong interest in working with animals and got a job at Green Lake Animal Hospital in north Seattle, where I gained my skills and knowledge over 8 years. I was finally ready to leave the big city life and decided to follow my dream of living in Montana.
I started at WAH in 2008, moved back to Seattle in 2015, but less than 2 years later I came back to a place that’s better fitting for my lifestyle. I have one calico kitty named Mimosa and I enjoy healthy cooking, yoga, hiking, riding horses, skiing, and visiting my family in Seattle. I would love to pursue my interest in integrative and holistic veterinary medicine for my next chapter of my career.
