BS in Biomedical Sciences from OSU (2001)

I received a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and a D.V.M. (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) from Oklahoma State University.  I have experience in small animal private practice as well as emergency medicine.  While I enjoyed practice, I found that education is truly my passion.  I began adjuncting for OCCC in 2009 and became a full time faculty member in January 2015.  I also still have my license to practice veterinary medicine in Oklahoma.

I enjoy reading (especially mysteries and historical fiction), spending time with my kids (two and four-legged), cheering on the Pokes, and running.
