“I was born at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO and grew up in several areas of the United States, being both an Air Force brat and 1st Lieutenant in the Army Reserves.  Most of my formative years, however, were spent between New Haven and Newton Connecticut.  In 1992, I moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma where I completed my Veterinary education at Oklahoma State University (Go Cowboys!).  What an experience Oklahoma has been!  In 2001, I moved to South Florida and purchased a home in Wilton Manors, a sub city within Ft. Lauderdale where I practiced Veterinary medicine for five years until a dreadful and heartbreaking day.  September 11, 2001 and my 38th birthday.  After this traumatic event I reevaluated my life and decided it was time to move back to Oklahoma where I was happiest.   I packed my bags, sold my house, and came back here to all of you and your wonderful warm personalities and way of life.  I worked in Oklahoma City at a day practice for approximately five years and the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Hospital for approximately six years.  In April 2006, I was extremely blessed to have the opportunity and capability of opening Gentle Care Animal Hospital as my own private practice.”
