I received my DVM degree from Michigan State University in 2008 and completed a small animal rotating internship at the University of Wisconsin in 2009. I then worked as a small animal ER doctor at Wisconsin Veterinary Referral center until 2011, when I moved to The Ohio State University to complete a residency/masters program in small animal emergency/critical care. I joined Purdue as a clinical assistant professor and became a boarded member of ACVECC in 2014 and have been living happily in Lafayette with my husband Dave and heeler mix Mack since that time. My professional interests include clinical teaching, point of care ultrasound, vascular access, clinical toxicology, coagulation, trauma, SIRS/Sepsis, and fluid therapy, among other things (like most ECC folks, I like a little bit of everything!) With advanced notice, I am happy to speak on any small animal ECC related topic beyond the ones listed below.
