I have wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995 and have been practicing in the Chicago suburbs ever since. In addition to private practice, I perform spay/neuter surgeries at a local shelter. Sharing in people’s relationships with their pets and helping to enrich those relationships is the most rewarding part of my job.

I share my home with my husband, two dogs, two cats and a yard full of wildlife. In my free time I enjoy wildlife and nature photography, travel and gardening.
