     Though I have grown to love and enjoy the urban lifestyle of Charlotte, NC, I grew up on a small farm in rural southwest Tennessee. It was this upbringing that made me realize my desire to be a veterinarian at a very early age. It also peaked my interest in learning about farm animals as well as companion animals. It was this upbringing that allowed me to have a childhood filled with pets and exposure to farm animals. I attended high school at Hardin County High School in Savannah, TN where I not only maintained my interest in veterinary medicine but also was a member of the soft ball team, the symphonic band and the marching band. After completion of high school my interest in veterinary medicine had only grown since childhood so I relocated to Martin, TN where I attended the University of Tennessee at Martin. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture with a major in Animal Science in May of 2003. While attending the University of Tennessee at Martin I was also invited to be a member of the university's symphonic band in which I played the flute and piccolo. Because of my love of music I became a member and eventually an officer of Sigma Alpha Iota the professional music fraternity for women. I was also honored to be a member of Alpha Zeta and Phi Kappa Phi Honor societies. It was during my first year of college that I was finally of age to work in the field of veterinary medicine and have been working in the veterinary field in some capacity ever since. This valuable experience further confirmed that Veterinary medicine was my desired career that I wanted to pursue. Upon completion of my Bachelor degree I accepted admission to The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville, TN. While attending veterinary school I was a member of Alpha Psi Veterinary Professional Fraternity. I was accepted in the USDA animal health technician internship program for veterinary students during my second year of veterinary school. I participated in center of excellence projects working with the internal medicine and nutrition service at the University of Tennessee's Veterinary Teaching Hospital. I developed a strong interest in nutrition that has only grown while in practice. Early in my formal training I realized that I have a strong interest Endocrinology, Internal Medicine and bovine reproductive and herd medicine. I expanded my training in these areas through my clinical year and through various externships. Shortly after receipt of my degree as a doctor of veterinary medicine I participated in an additional internship at the University of California at Davis' research center where I furthered my knowledge and training in bovine reproduction and herd medicine. It was a great experience and I learned so much but the main thing I took away from the experience is that small animal medicine was my true passion and the direction I wanted to take my career. It made me realize how much I love helping people's pets because really I am helping their family members. It is truly rewarding to make people’s lives more complete by keeping their four legged family members happy and healthy. In order to fulfill this passion I accepted a job in the Charlotte, NC area and have been practicing small animal medicine since Fall 2007. Besides my passion for small animal medicine I continue to have a love of music of all genres and enjoy attending concerts. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as gardening and swimming. I enjoy attending live sporting events. Most of all I enjoy spending free time with friends, visiting Tennessee family and my dogs Patch and Mutt and my cat Tippy Tail, and spending time with her dog Flash.
