I grew up in Hyrum and earned my undergraduate degree from USU. After finishing vet school my husband, Chris, and I moved back to Cache Valley. We have two girls, Kaylee and Taylor. Our family enjoys camping and spending time outdoors. We also enjoy showing in jr. livestock shows with goats and sheep. As well as, showing Portuguese Water Dogs and Bichon Frise’s.

Work Experience:
I worked for four years in Preston, Idaho at the Animal Medical Clinic. I enjoyed a wide range of patients from dogs and cats to cows, horses, sheep, goats, llamas and alpacas (which I really love). I am now more focused on small animals and am especially interested in the behavior of dogs and cats. I have been here, Bridgerland Cache Animal Hospital, since 2005. I was also Utah’s Veterinarian of the year in 2017.
