My love of veterinary medicine began in 1995 when I started working as a kennel assistant at White Oaks West. I love meeting new people, helping their animals, and the anticipation of never truly knowing what will walk through the door. I love the animals, I love the challenge of a difficult case and most of all, I love being a part of the amazing relationships people and their pets share. I love working at White Oaks West because all of the staff: veterinarians, technicians, and receptionists, share the same goal: to provide the best preventative medicine to pets to allow them and their owners to share their bond as long as possible. My primary veterinary interests are canine and feline medicine and surgery. I'd love to meet you and your pet!
My husband Nate and I live on our farm in Mason City IL. We have two gregarious and energetic boys, Wyatt (6) and Emmett (3), and 2 dogs: Parker, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and Penny, an Australian Shepherd, and a brand new guinea pig. I love spending time with my family, cooking, attempting a garden, and working out.
