I was born in Mexico City and grew up in California and Toronto. I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian since very young, taking in and caring for countless stray and injured animals, working with horses, and volunteering with local humane societies.
I completed my Bachelor in Animal Science and got my DVM at Oregon State Univeristy, where I met my husband.
I have a strong interest in orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, and enjoy preventative medicine.
My hobbies include long distance trail running and painting.
We have 3 dogs, a cat, and a parrot.
