Greetings! I am a Rapid City native, born and raised. My passion for veterinary medicine started at the ripe old age of 5 years old.
I have always loved being around animals and could not imagine myself doing anything more rewarding. I graduated from Stevens High School,
obtained my Bachelor’s degree from SDSU, competing on the equestrian team throughout college; and eventually went on to the University of
Minnesota in the twin cities for my veterinary degree. My special interests in veterinary medicine include internal medicine, shelter medicine, and dermatology.
However, my favorite part about this job is being able to see a patient from puppyhood to geriatric age, aiding with all the life stages
in between. I most enjoy seeing the special bond that owners share with their pets.
I love being out in the Black Hills – hiking, being on the lake, or just walking around in one of the many tourist
towns. My other hobbies include cooking, running, Cross Fit, wine tasting, and spending time with friends and family. I am married with three
fur babies, Karsen, a loving golden retriever, Harvey, a rambunctious goldendoodle and Bruce, a food-loving cat.
I can’t wait to meet you and your amazing pets!
