I grew up in Northern California but have been eager to relocate to Portland for a while. After visiting a few times, I fell in love with the area and moved here with my dog in September 2014. My chihuahua/corgi mix Rizzo is named after the character in one of my favorite movies, Grease. She is a big fan of treats, squeaky toys, squirrels and the ocean. Right now, we live in a North Portland skinny house with my roommate and her 2 chihuahuas, which makes for a lively household!
I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a BA in Psychology. In my spare time, I like to paint and am really enjoying exploring my new town. I especially love checking out Portland’s art galleries, live music, breweries, and numerous vegetarian restaurants.
My previous veterinary experience was at a specialty/emergency clinic in California, where I spent 5 years. I’ve always loved animals, and am so happy to be able to spend my days in their company.
I feel very lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest, and to have found a place at Northwest Neighborhood Vet!
