What led you to become a Veterinarian? I originally wanted to be a pediatrician, but then decided that I didn’t like the sight of human blood. I have always loved animals and medicine!

What do you love most about your job? What I love most about my job is of course when I get to save an animal’s life! I also appreciate how important it is to relieve suffering.

What is your favorite part of your work day/what can you not wait to do when you are at work? Finding the answers to complicated cases.

Do you have any particular interests in veterinary medicine? I am very interested in oncology as well as emergency/critical care.

Do you have a code you live by (either career wise/or out of work)? Values/beliefs? “It doesn’t cost a penny to be kind”. I treat everyone the way I would want to be treated. And I treat my patients the way I’d want my own pets to be treated.

Are you passionate about anything outside of work? Hobbies/studies? My husband and I love to see live music, and I love working out and going out into nature. We love UCLA sports, Angels Baseball, and LA Kings Hockey. We have a little boy who is almost a year old, two cats, and one dog!
