I grew up in a small town in Thuringia, Germany and received my veterinary degree from the University of Leipzig in 1996. I have been working in private practice since my move to Portland in 2003. I strongly believe in the integration of different medical frameworks, guided by compassion, open communication, and appropriate diagnostics in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for my patients. I am certified in veterinary acupuncture and continuing my training in veterinary herbal medicine and food therapy. 

I love spending time with family & friends, traveling, hiking, ping pong, pickleball, and gardening.

Homegrown here in Portland, Oregon, I have always had a strong love for animals and a nurturing tendency. After graduating high school, I took a few years off until I decided the veterinary field was for me. I am currently gaining experience in the veterinary industry here at the Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic while pursuing prerequisite courses for Portland Community College’s Veterinary Technology program.

I am passionate about providing access to healing and preventative care through the synthesis of Eastern and Western medicine.

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, I have graduated from Benson High School and received a certification in veterinary assisting from Carrington College. Recently starting my journey here at Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic, I am excited to meet all the clients and their four-legged companions. My passion for animals began at the age of 3 when first traveling to Mexico to visit family. Every trip was always heartbreaking, I could never fathom or understand why there were so many strays and saw very few animals that had homes. Seeing the reality for these animals drove me to want to pursue a career in the veterinary field. I love animals and truly feel my purpose in life is to help heal and educate pet guardians to help their companions live healthy lives.

I love spending time with my family, eating a lot of food, listening to music and going hiking.

I am a native Oregonian. I discovered at a very young age that I wanted to do something to help my furry friends. I was able to volunteer at the Oregon Humane Society for about four and a half years, where I saw pets that needed love and care. This experience set me on the path to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Working at Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic, helps me towards my goal to become a veterinarian and open up my own clinic one day. A fun fact about me is that I have three very spoiled pets. Two chihuahuas, Sweetie and Milo. My other pet is my siamese cat named Ginger who has been my best friend since birth. 

A couple of my hobbies are trying new recipes, going to the movies with friends, and swimming. 

I am looking forward to meeting you and caring for your fur babies.

I'm originally from Massachusetts but I moved to Portland in the summer of 2019, and started working at the clinic at the beginning of 2020. I graduated from Beloit College in the spring of 2018, with a BA degree in psychology and biology.

Though I don't have a pet of my own at the moment, I grew up with a toy poodle named 'Goliath'. I've always loved all kinds of animals and have volunteered with different humane societies in the past.

Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic gave me an opportunity to combine my interest in biology with my love of furry friends! While working here I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing the bonds that exist between clients and their animals. I've grown to love every pet I've met thus far here at the clinic, and I look forward to getting to know all the ones I have yet to meet.

Some of my hobbies outside the clinic include hiking, running & drawing.
