I was born in New London, Connecticut but was raised a little here and a little there in NC. After coming to Wilmington on vacation I decided not to leave. I am very passionate about client education and expanding my knowledge of different surgical procedures for pets. I love animals because of the ability to connect with them as well as learn new and innovative ways to treat them. I joined the Atlantic Animal Hospital team with 3 years of veterinary assistant experience and am excited about the opportunity to be a part of a progressive and innovated veterinary hospital. I currently have a pitbull named Jack, which I rescued last year, and love him more than anything! My goals in the future are to grow in my knowledge of surgical procedures, continue to help educate owners on the best care for their pets and to advocate for pitbull rescues, as well as the breed.
