Questions I often hear from my clients include when I decided to become a veterinarian. The truth is I cannot remember wanting to be anything else. My love of all animals started at an early age with playing with plastic horses with my friends. When I was in grade school I caught snakes and “rescued” any animal that happened to come into my yard- I was sure it was lost and needed a home. In high school my friends were cheerleaders and thespians but I took the city bus to go ride the horse that I was leasing after school. I then went to Colorado State University and graduated with a BS in Biology. I did my postgraduate studies at UNLV in cell biology and received a Master’s degree. I then attended and graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine. I then started practicing veterinary medicine in Reno Nevada in 1993. I love helping people and their pets. Pets give us unconditional love and we dont’t receive this kind of love from people. I am so glad that I can help the animals that give so much to me.
I love to learn . I spend much of my time attending continuing education seminars all over the country so that I can be up-to-date on current veterinary medicine.
