I am a small animal veterinarian who developed a passion for natural medicine while living in New Zealand. My vet career was lucky enough to begin in the beautiful country of New Zealand. I was able to see how living off the land by growing our own vegetables and raising our own animals was the way to live the healthiest versions of ourselves. My pets were lucky to have lots of open space to run around in, and we were always at the beach or the river.
When we moved back to the States five years ago, my husband unfortunately developed an autoimmune disease. As we researched natural medicine options for him to avoid the horrible side effects of the treatment options his doctors were providing him, I realized that I was doing a disservice to my animal patients by not offering these holistic options to them. I began down the integrative medicine route and have never been happier. I became certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for pets, which has changed my entire practice and treatment outcomes.
Through nutrition, acupuncture, herbal medicine, essential oils, and supplements, every animal can achieve optimal health or feel their best even when they have a chronic illness or disease like cancer. I currently have my certification in acupuncture and a Graduate Diploma in Chinese herbal medicine, and I am continuously learning about the other natural modalities and growing my knowledge base every day so I can help pets in new and exciting ways to help them thrive!
