My affinity for animals began at a young age. With parents that nurtured my ever-growing relationship with animals, I was encouraged to feed ducks at the park and pet horses we’d pass near my grandparent’s house. If I found a lost pet near our home, I made every effort to reunite the pet with their family.
My high school summers were dedicated to volunteering at the Pittsburgh Zoo, and working for our pets’ veterinarian. The doctor’s ability to simultaneously treat animals while also comforting their owners convinced me that veterinary medicine was the career path for me.
I received my Bachelors of Science from Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, OH and then completed my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University. I began practicing in the Columbus area in 2009 and then decided to open Liberty Pet Hospital in Powell in 2015.
When I visit my dentist or family physician, I value their caring bedside manner and honest interest in my life. Asking how my husband is doing, or queries regarding our latest travels show that they care about me as an individual, and that I’m not just another patient on their schedule.
I like to create that same type of relationship with my clients and their pets. Specifically, I want to foster a mutual trust so that each conversation at Liberty Pet Hospital is specific to each family and each furry friend. I want every discussion I have with you about pet care to be grounded in honesty, and for us to reach every decision regarding treatment together.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our hospital website. I look forward to getting to know you and your beloved pets!

Having grown up on a family farm in Central Illinois, my affinity for taking care of animals began at a young age. My childhood was spent raising and showing cattle, horses, rabbits, dairy goats, poultry, and llamas at county fairs and in 4-H. I have since obtained a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of Illinois. While it is no longer my dream to become a veterinarian, it is my goal to work in research and development for animal prosthetics and implants as a biomedical engineer. My degree in Biomedical Engineering is expected May 2020 from Wright State University, with the intention of pursuing a postgraduate degree. My fur family consists of three Quarter Horse geldings (Ace, Archie, and Leo), four Australian Cattle Dogs (Lily, Crash, Patches, and Bandit), and two cats (Sven and Summer).
My passion for animal care began at a very young age. I grew up on a family farm in Cambridge, OH where we raised beef cattle. I also raised and showed Boer goats in 4H. I obtained my dual Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Biology with a minor in entrepreneurship from Bowling Green State University. Since then, I was privileged to be offered admittance to the Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine where I will earn my DVM in May 2021. After graduation, I plan to work in mixed animal veterinary medicine. My fur family consists of a fox terrier (Cooper), a blue heeler (Lily), a pit bull (Diesel), and a hedgehog (Herbie).
