If I had to choose a single word to sum up my approach to veterinary care I would say, Compassion. My only goal is to help you be successful in whatever way that means for you. Maybe it means helping your 14 year old chicken maintain as healthy a life as possible. Maybe it means helping you decide how to best pre-condition your calves before they go into the feedlot to help minimize disease. I understand how the animals in our lives are so tied to our well-being, be it emotionally, financially or both. My goal is to help you in the most compassionate and supportive way possible.
I was one of the lucky students who graduated in this Covid mess in May of 2020. Yep, even though I have a lot more wrinkles than my classmates, I just finished vet school, which has been a life-long dream. It was not the celebration of achievement that I had hoped to have, but you work with what you’ve got. My family and I have lived in Franktown since 2006 on a beautiful property on Greenland Rd and I am incredibly excited to begin this leg of my journey. My family currently consists of one husband (I don’t recommend any more than that), a daughter, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 chinchilla, 2 rats, 3 fish, 6 chickens, 2 Missouri Fox Trotters and 1 retired ranch horse.
I grew up riding horses (and still do) but I fell in love with cattle at school. There is just something so hardy about them. It feels like they are the epitome of the western spirit. Don’t get me wrong, I still love working with small ruminants such as sheep, goats, llama and alpaca, but beef cattle have a special place in my heart.
Since I had always planned on opening my own practice I decided to attend the combined DVM/MBA program which CSU offers. The business degree has helped me tremendously in understanding the fiscal part of production medicine, and didn’t hurt in helping me understand how to run a business.
