I grew up in Watford City, North Dakota and was fortunate to have a lot of exposure to animals and veterinary medicine in that rural community setting. Whether I was working with a companion animal or on a farm call to a local ranch, the wide variety of animals and the incredible people that I got to meet quickly became my favorite aspect of the profession!
I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND, and then went on to Colorado State University for my DVM degree. While I enjoyed my time in Colorado, I am very excited to call Rapid City and the Black Hills home – where I’m closer to my family and friends.
My special interests include dentistry and oral surgery, oncology, and emergency medicine. Outside of the hospital, you can find me at the lake either kayaking or paddle boarding, attempting to golf, or hiking with my two dogs – Ada and Zuri.
I look forward to meeting you and your animals!
