Special Interests & Why I Love What I Do

My special areas of interest includes hemodynamic instability, shock, reproductive emergencies, toxicology and pain management.

What I like the most about being part of the FVARC team is that we provide a wide variety of services under one roof: emergency, critical care, surgery, internal medicine and so on. It’s good for our patients and clients and it’s also good for all of us. We learn from each other and support each other. Being a part of that is rewarding. And I am honored to be there for clients during their greatest time of need.


I have a yellow labrador retriever named Mac and a flat-coated retriever mix named Sophie. Our two cats; Socks, & Henry, make our family complete.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, and nature watching. I also like cheering for the Packers and Cubs, participating in local church and Lions Club activities and quilting.
