I grew up in Hickory, NC and was constantly surrounded by animals. I practically lived in my uncle and grandfather’s veterinary clinic. My uncle was my favorite person growing up so I followed in his footsteps to NC State for my undergraduate degree where I received my BS in Animal Science. I continued at NC State and graduated in 2020 with my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine focusing on mixed animal practice. I moved to Southern California with my girlfriend and our cats, Albondiga, Chicharron, and Frijol, in June following graduation. When I am not working I enjoy playing and watching all sports, hiking, and traveling.
