I graduated from Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. I completed the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) Course in 2003 which trained me in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for animals. Since then integrative veterinary medicine has been my passion. I have learned other integrative therapies such as Bowen Technique for animals, NAET (Nambudripad allergy elimination technique), and Reiki. I have continued my education in Chinese Medicine through the Chi Institute and the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies by taking courses in Chinese Herbal Medicine. I have attended multiple Animal Hospice weekend seminars and helped bring awareness of animal hospice as an alternative to euthanasia to the Greater Seattle area.
My practice is based on loving kindness and compassion with an emphasis on the human animal bond. I specialize in treating cats and dogs but I have treated the occasional rabbit, rat and guinea pig. The integration of Chinese and Western Medicine, Nutrition, Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy is used to help my patients heal. I believe in preventative medicine for animals with proper nutrition and exercise as the basis for optimal health. I enjoy educating animal lovers on a wide range of topics to help them maintain healthy animal companions in mind, body, and spirit.
I am past president of the Washington State Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and Veterinary Botanical Medical Association. Outside of veterinary practice I lead an Adopt-A-Street program helping to beautify my neighborhood in Seattle. I most enjoy the great outdoors and cats so I take my cat camping and on long road trips as often as possible with my favorite person in the whole world, Betsy.
