After graduating from The University of the South with a BA in mathematics I realized veterinary medicine would be the perfect venue for combining my passion for science, animals, and people. I next completed two years of veterinary prerequisites at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and went on to graduate from veterinary school in 1980 at UT Knoxville. After vet school I spent 3 years in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan completing a 3 year internship and residency in small animal internal medicine.

Marriage and a young son brought me back to Memphis to raise my family on our family farm and to be near my parents and extended family . Here I have happily been in small anima l mixed practice since 1984.

I owned a small animal practice in Germantown for 18 years. A desire to spend more time with my family and grandchildren and to concentrate on practicing medicine without the cares of running a small business led me to close my solo practice in 2010. Since that time I have worked as an associate veterinarian in multi doctor practices.

My current interests include my grandchildren, caring for my family property and home, tutoring elementary school students, reading, gardening, and a whole host of activities with my church.
