I am a native of Haywood County and began working at the Animal Hospital of Waynesville as a kennel assistant in high school and continued working at AHOW through vet school. I majored in Animal Science at NC State and graduated from The North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. After being away for several years going to school then working at Parkway Animal Hospital in Cary NC, we relocated back to Waynesville. My veterinary interests include surgery, dentistry, dermatology, and reproduction, but enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine. I am active in church activities including the choir. I am married to Hunter and we have two sons, Bradley and William, one dog, Ralphie, and one cat, Campbell. Other interests include watching the boys grow and change, running, camping, cooking, entertaining family and friends, and crocheting.
