I was raised just over the border in Glenwood, Illinois on a small hobby farm where my family raised horses, pot belly pigs, beef cattle, chickens, and goats. It was this upbringing I feel that instilled my love for animals. I have always been more interested in science and math as a student, and in high school took a job as a kennel assistant at one of the local small animal hospitals. I immediately fell in love with the profession, and the doctors that I worked with encouraged me to pursue becoming a veterinarian.

I have worked in the profession for almost 20 years and have been fortunate enough to work in every facet of the functional veterinary hospital. I feel that it was this experience that fueled my passion to become a veterinarian and to give me a unique perspective on how a veterinary hospital really works. I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. I participated in an emergency and critical care internship for six months prior to taking an associate position at a local animal hospital. I have been working in this area for almost eight years and really enjoy working with our clients and being able to help them make the correct health decisions for their pets. My favorite part of working in small animal medicine is generating a relationship with the clients and being able to see patients grow over the years. I also have a special interest in complex medicine cases as well as emergency and critical care.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my family. My wife and I have three children, two of which are twins who keep us very busy. We also have a Labrador Retriever and five cats.
