I graduated from the University of Illinois Veterinary School in 1997. I am married with three daughters, and I live on a farm with fourteen horses, four goats, six chickens, ten cats, and two dogs. I work part-time at Caton Crossing Animal Hospital, but the rest of my time is devoted to "working on the farm" and spending time with my family. I enjoy challenging surgeries and working with clients and their pets. In my free time, I like camping, running, horseback riding, and swimming.
