I am originally a Missourian and received both my undergraduate in Animal Science and DVM from the University of Missouri in Columbia. I practiced both large and small animal medicine in Wyoming, IL. It was a great time of growth and learning and even though it can be incredibly hard work, I do miss pulling baby calves!
During the fall of 2016, I married my husband Paul, became a step-mom to a wonderful little girl named Anna, and started working at Pekin Veterinary Clinic. Our family is rounded out by a very social feline named Kirby, and we expect a new (human) addition this fall!
As a Veterinarian, I like to emphasize preventative veterinary care through good dental practices, proper nutrition, and appropriate vaccination.
One of the many reasons I love working at Pekin Veterinary Clinic includes the ability to work with skilled, compassionate, and well-trained staff and doctors. We’re all a team and I couldn’t function a day here without them!
