I have been a practicing veterinarian since 1989 when I graduated from Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. The majority of my career has been at Battenkill Veterinary in upstate NY. I work with a great crew there including another Turks & Caicos veterinary member, Dr. Gretchen Allen. I have been a member of TCVAfor about 15 years. I have also been a founding member of an emergency veterinary hospital in upstate NY. I live on a 220-acre conserved farm with my husband Dave. He is a dairy veterinarian working in the feed industry. We raised our two boys Dillon and Jesse there. I have 2 grandchildren that love coming to visit the farm. That brings me a lot of joy. In the summer I spend most days off at a lake house near our farm. In the winter I spend time doing pottery.
