A Little About Me 

Before I became a “holistic” veterinarian I felt limited and inadequate when treating my patients. 

It made me sick to send a dog or cat out the door with a processed, prescription diet. I recall debating with a manufacturer rep about the presence of ethoxyquin in their food and what I believed to be an association between artificial preservatives and the rise in pet cancer. Treating every case with antibiotics or steroids felt like malpractice. Using toxic chemicals to clean our clinic never felt right.

My "toolbox" was so limited! 

I have felt a lot of guilt for how I practiced conventionally those first few years out of veterinary school. 

If only I had known then, what I know now!   Have you ever said that to yourself?

Many post veterinary school courses and brilliant holistic mentors have helped me become an accomplished integrative healer! 

I am always learning, but I can now confidently share my expertise as a holistic veterinarian, Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, Certified Food Therapist, pet product formulator, author, and Certified Health Coach! 

I'd like to help you take a shortcut on your journey to wellness by providing holistic education and tools for your pet's health and your own! 

It makes me happy to share natural care modalities with everyone I meet.

Hearing stories from my team and clients about how their dog, cat, or family member was helped with a species-appropriate diet, herbals or oils is my ultimate satisfaction!
