Why did you choose to become a Veterinary Surgeon? I chose to be a veterinary surgeon because I find the ability to resolve complex problems to be extremely satisfying, particularly in orthopedics. I enjoy the challenge and have an innate ability to visualize solutions. 
Why do you choose to practice at VCA West Coast? I chose West Coast because I wanted to be part of the most advanced specialty hospital in California. I enjoy practicing collaborative medicine in a multi-disciplinary environment. I love working with people who continually challenge me to be the best.
What do you enjoy doing outside of practicing medicine? Outside of practicing veterinary medicine, I enjoy travelling, diving, sailing, reading, and bowling!
