Brief Bio

I am a native of southwest Virginia and live a few miles from the farm where I grew up, in Snowville. After graduating from vet school, I practiced for 3 years in Texas before returning home to continue my education. Most of my free time is spent chasing my two and a half year old son, but I also love to cook, read, dance, play piano and harp, and garden. I have a (mostly) green thumb, and recently began growing dahlias and orchids. My son and I currently have too many pets, with an indoor cat, two outdoor cats, a cranky old Dachshund, a retired racing Greyhound, and a newly-acquired German Shepherd puppy.
