I was born and raised in the New Orleans area, attending St. Mary’s Dominican High School before moving on to get my undergraduate degree at Louisiana State University. I graduated from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2018, and also obtained my veterinary acupuncture certification from the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in Florida shortly before graduation. Since then I have been back in my hometown practicing this mix of Eastern and Western small animal medicine and I am so excited to be able to bring acupuncture and my integrative medicine style to the patients of Crescent City Vet! When I am not working, I enjoy spending time cooking and playing around in my vegetable garden with my husband Grant and our 3 dogs Lena, Alby, and Duke!
