I am a New Jersey native, graduated from UCDavis in 1991, then returned back to my home state. I had a house call practice for about 25 years, have worked in small animal and mixed practices, and done a lot of relief work along the way. In 2018, I became certified in veterinary acupuncture through the esteemed Chi University in Florida. My husband, two adult children and I live on our farm in Sussex County with horses, alpacas, and Rhodesian Ridgebacks. What I have of 'spare time' usually involves horses, dogs, or boats.
