She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. She practiced in general and emergency practice prior to entering shelter medicine practice in Baltimore. In 2010, she returned to Cornell to provide leadership for the Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program.

She lives on a hobby farm lovingly called Scratch and Dent Acres, which is shared with her husband but truly run by a cadre of rescued companions -- which include 3 dairy goats, 17 chickens, 3 chihuahuas, 2 cats, and a red-eared slider.
