Where are you originally from?

I was born and raised in Fairfax, VA.

Favorite activities include exploring wineries in search of excellent red wine, binge-watching Netflix shows, reading, and napping.  Anything that involves spending time with my fiancée Alex and pup Jaeda makes the list.

Name a few favorite books/music/movies:

I love thrillers – Taking Lives, Along Came a Spider and anything with Morgan Freeman go down as favorite movies.  Favorite recent books include Little Mercies, Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.  Target Book Club picks are always good!  Citizen Cope is my all-time favorite artist.

Favorite sports teams or icons:

I love DC sports! Huge Redskins, Nationals, and Capitals fan.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

This one is hard! Teleportation. See below.

What special skills do you have?

I am exceptionally good at getting lost, even in familiar places. With GPS.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Compassionate. Driven. Positive.

Why do you love about working at Caring Hands?

I instantly fell in love with the warm, Caring Hands community.  Everyone from the front desk staff to veterinary technicians and assistants genuinely cares about you and your pets.  Collaboration amongst doctors is common, resulting in high-quality patient care.  If anything happens to my personal pets or my family’s pets, I want them at Caring Hands!

What’s something about you that most people don’t know?

I didn’t realize that veterinary medicine was my calling until I was a junior in college pursuing a degree in economics.  I couldn’t be happier that I made the decision to go back to school and work towards my veterinary degree. Also, I’m deathly allergic to fish!
