B.SC. (HON), B.VET.MED, CVA
I joined the Forest Glade Animal Hospital team in 2013 and eventually became a practice owner. Prior to my return home, I worked on both large and small animals in Midland Ontario and then moved to Bracebridge where I focused on small animals, particularly learning the art of acupuncture. Since being at Forest Glade I have taken special interest in orthopaedic surgery and I love the challenge! When I'm not 'knee' deep in work, I love all aspects of life near the great lakes - swimming, boating, camping and sunsets with my young family, our dog Jed and 3 legged cat named Moe-G.
