I first developed a love for horses as a small child riding on my grandparent’s farm in Missouri. Quickly after starting riding lessons at the age of 10 I became involved in the United States Pony Club and at the age of 12 got my first horse, a Morgan filly. My riding career involved combined training and dressage both of which I learned alongside my mare. I still have this mare today. She is now 27 and retired at a farm in New Hill.
Following high school, I went on to study Equine Sciences at Colorado State University. I
completed my bachelor's degree in 2000 and entered Veterinary School at the University of Illinois
later that year. I graduated from veterinary school in 2004 with a focus on equine studies and was
fortunate to be accepted to an equine medicine and surgery internship at the University of
Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. From here I joined a small practice outside of Atlanta, GA
where I lived for 2 years. It was at that time that I moved to North Carolina to join 3H Veterinary
Hospital and Clinic in New Hill, NC. Since 2007 I have enjoyed serving and being a part of the
equine community in the Triangle Area. When I’m not working I enjoy all the time I can get with
my husband, 2 young children, our dog and my horse.
