I grew up in Northeast Arkansas and worked as a human radiology technologist before entering veterinary school. I attended veterinary school at Louisiana State University,
graduating in 1997. After graduation, I completed a one-year large animal internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), Prince Edward Island, Canada. I then moved
back to the South to enter a three-year residency in diagnostic imaging at the University of Georgia. I completed the residency in 2001. I am a Diplomate of the American
College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR).
After the completion of my residency, I moved back to Canada to again work at the Atlantic Veterinary College as a radiologist. I was employed from 2001-2015 as service
chief of the diagnostic imaging section and residency director for the ACVR resident training program. On multiple occasions, I have been an invited speaker, providing
continuing education at conferences in North America as well as Europe. I have received multiple awards for my teaching excellence and have inspired numerous students
from AVC to enter the imaging specialty.
Southland Vets was founded in 2015. I had returned home to Arkansas, to visit my parents during my 2013-14 sabbatical from the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada.
My aunt's dog (Dance) was sick. In order to get an ultrasound and a needle biopsy of his liver, she was told she would have to take him to Memphis for the procedure. I
wondered how many other pet owners in the area had to travel long distances for specialty services like this. And just like that, the idea for Southland Vets was born!
My goal is to provide veterinarians prompt, accurate answers and build a lasting, valued relationship as part of your diagnostic team.
In my spare time, I enjoy photography and traveling. I have 2 dogs; both are patchwork Catahoulas with blue eyes. I actively train the dogs in obedience and compete in agility.
