Personal Statement

After spending eight years in Colorado practicing emergency and critical care, I am excited to be a part of the team at Midwestern University.  Emergencies can be very challenging for the owner, the veterinary team, and for the pet.  I’m excited to mentor our bright students as they learn how to handle emergencies we see in our patients in a thorough and professional manner, while fine-tuning their critical thinking skills.
