What has been your path leading up to Cornell?

I studied animal biology and veterinary medicine at the University of California, Davis. Following completion of my D.V.M. in 2012, I completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at a private specialty hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. I then moved to North Carolina where I completed a one-year exotic animal medicine internship and a three-year zoological medicine residency with North Carolina State University, the North Carolina Zoo and the North Carolina Aquariums. My last stop before joining Cornell was achieving board certification with the American College of Zoological Medicine this past fall.
