I was 11 years old when I started work at a local riding stable, where I rode horses, mucked out stalls, fed, groomed and saddled horses, cleaned tack, and performed numerous other chores. It is fair to say I was partially brought up by the owners of Knoll Farm. When I was 14 the school horse I cared for was terribly wounded in the shoulder. The equine vet put me in charge of caring for the wound, and that experience truly set me on the path to veterinary medicine. Fast forward to my graduation from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1990, and I eventually settled at Edinburg in 2000 as a general practitioner and partner. In 2015 I became owner of Edinburg Animal Hospital. Along with practicing general medicine and surgery, I have strong interests in dentistry and behavioral counseling. I feel blessed for having a career I love, one that is so fulfilling, and involves animals every day. I have two grown children (Ryan and Alexandra), and 3 dogs. During my (limited) spare time, I enjoy traveling, outdoor activities, photography, reading, and I especially love training and competing in agility with my dogs. My older border collie Annie Oakley, recently deceased, was a 3 time champion, and I currently enjoy training my latest additions to the family, 2 border collies named Bowie and Kobe.
