Overview

  • I received a DVM from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in 2011, after which I completed a residency in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology at the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health at Michigan State University.

    I joined the New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and UNH in 2015. My work since consists predominantly of diagnostic pathology serving primary care veterinarians as well as livestock producers, zoological collections, and wildlife agencies. The latter, combined with collaboration with colleagues at UNH and afield has led to the development of nascent research in emerging and zoonotic wildlife disease surveillance in the broader context of One Health.
