My responsibilities include working toward attaining my master’s degree to supplement my DVM, helping to conduct research that will benefit livestock producers and veterinarians, and to assist in the education of veterinary students at GPVEC.
My primary areas of interest are in equine and beef cattle reproduction, genetics, epidemiology, preventative medicine, welfare, and stockmanship. Collectively my interest is in disease prevention through various management techniques at the herd and individual animal levels. These management techniques include such things as using proper stockmanship to minimize stress and increase the welfare of livestock, proper nutrition, and good stewardship of animal health products. I also have a passion for education, specifically student education in the fields of medicine, science, and agriculture. High quality education is important for the advancement of the veterinary and medical professions as well as the promotion of science and agricultural knowledge within the general population.
