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 (22), Abigail (20), and Amy (18). We are entertained by our new puppy, Bridget, an energetic small terrier, and our 2 kitties, Finn and Duncan.
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 living in California. Abby is a 3rd year student at Mount Holyoke College, and is studying in Scotland this Fall. Abby has also worked at Nottingham Animal Hospital as a receptionist. Amy is a first year student at Hofstra University, where she is a member of the 3 times National Championship dance team, and studies in the Honors College. Our entire family enjoys traveling; in fact, Joe and I met in Belgium in 1986. I can usually be found reading, knitting, or throwing pottery in my free time, or playing with my puppy!
