I grew up on a small farm in Bloomington, Indiana. My early years were spend surrounded by animals, and I always knew that I would someday become a veterinarian.
I attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, and graduated with a B.A. in Zoology in 1981. I then graduated from veterinary school at Purdue University, and moved to New Jersey in 1985. I originally thought that I would spend a year or two in New Jersey, but I'm still here! (and loving it!) On August 1, 1989, after 4 years of veterinary practice in New Jersey, I opened the Nottingham Animal Hospital.
My husband Joe and I are thrilled to be raising three wonderful children: Joe (20), Abigail (18), and Amy (16). We recently lost our beloved dog Jean Luc at the age of 14, but we still have 2 very energetic kitties, Finn and Duncan, to entertain us.
I think veterinary medicine is the greatest career in the world. Every day is different; every day brings new challenges and interesting cases. I enjoy treating internal medicine cases, geriatrics, and ophthalmology. I particularly enjoy interacting with our patients' owners, many of whom I consider friends.
When I am not at Nottingham, I spend as much time as possible with my family. All 3 of my kids are very busy with activities. Joe is a graduate of Nottingham High School, where he enjoyed playing football (STATE CHAMPS!!!!), swimming, and track. He is currently working hard at 2 jobs. Abby is attending Mount Holyoke College, and loves to perform in musical theater productions, was drum major of the Nottingham Marching Unit, and worked at Kuser Mansion. Abby has also worked at Nottingham Animal Hospital as a receptionist. Amy is a Junior at Nottingham, is captain of the band front, and is a competitive dancer with a local dance academy. Our entire family enjoys traveling; in fact, Joe and I met in Belgium in 1986. If I were to have free time, I enjoy music, knitting, reading, antiques, and throwing pottery on my pottery wheel.
