I was raised in southeast Texas and started working in a veterinary clinic the summer I turned 13. I knew from that age I wanted nothing more than to be a veterinarian! I worked every summer and holiday at Groves Veterinary Clinic, gaining as much experience as I could. I graduated from Nederland High School in 1991 and went to Texas A&M University for my undergraduate education. I then went on to attend veterinary school at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated from vet school in 1999 and my husband and I moved to Austin in 2000. I worked in a couple of veterinary hospitals in town until I opened Austin Urban Veterinary Center in 2009. We have grown to a five doctor practice now and I love the relationships we have built with the downtown community! We continue to grow and plan to be in the downtown area for a long time!
My husband and I met at Texas A&M in 1992 and we have been married 21 years. We have two amazing boys, Gavin, 14, and Logan, 5. We have two dogs, Cassie the Frenchie and Gus the Terrier. We are super fortunate to have the majority of our family within an hour of us so we get to spend a lot of time with them. We love to snow ski, we enjoy the outdoors, and I love to scrapbook my kids’ lives!!
