Overview

  • I received my veterinary degree from the University of Tennessee: College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015, followed by a residency in anatomic pathology at the Michigan State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, and became board-certified as a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists in 2018. I joined the New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (NHVDL) and UNH in 2018. NHVDL diagnostic cases involve postmortem, surgical pathology, and cytology submissions across a broad range of domestic, exotic, and wildlife species.

    My current interests include investigations of infectious and neoplastic disease processes in domestic and exotic animal species, incorporating diagnostic cases in student education, providing continuing education and outreach to regional veterinarians, and collaborating with researchers and wildlife biologists to explore infectious and emerging diseases in New England wildlife.
