Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, I have graduated from Benson High School and received a certification in veterinary assisting from Carrington College. Recently starting my journey here at Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic, I am excited to meet all the clients and their four-legged companions. My passion for animals began at the age of 3 when first traveling to Mexico to visit family. Every trip was always heartbreaking, I could never fathom or

understand why there were so many strays and saw very few animals that had homes. Seeing the reality for these animals drove me to want to pursue a career in the veterinary field. I love animals and truly feel my purpose in life is to help heal and educate pet guardians to help their companions live healthy lives.

I love spending time with my family, eating a lot of food,  listening to music and going hiking.
