Originally from Canberra, Australia, I graduated from the University of Sydney in 2017.
During Vet School I worked weekends at the RSPCA animal shelter located in my hometown. Here I cultivated a passion for animal welfare which saw me move back home after graduation to practice shelter medicine at the RSPCA.
In addition to my work at the shelter, I have also spent time in general practice, emergency and as a primary care clinician at the University of Sydney teaching hospital. During my time at the university, I obtained a specialized certificate in training and assessment to further develop my skills in mentoring students. I enjoy learning and growing in all aspects of my life, especially in veterinary medicine where my key interests include surgery and pain management.
I believe animals play such an important role in our society. Our pets are often the one constant throughout our ever-changing lives. They comfort us through hardships and provide unconditional love and support. They are always there for us, and I feel privileged to be able to care for them.
We strive to make every visit as gentle, pain-free, and stress-free as possible for your pets. I practice using a fear-free approach and am dedicated to providing a low-stress experience for my patients. I am proud to be Fear Free certified! To become certified, I have completed a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam and also have to complete continuing education to remain certified.

I look forward to exploring the Bay Area and the rest of the country in the future. When not at work, you can find me outside playing tennis or having a video game marathon with my housemate.
