I’m a native San Diegan, having grown up in San Ysidro and then moving to Eastlake in 2005. Growing up, going to the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld and watching Animal Planet cultivated my love of animals, big or small. I then made the decision to become a veterinarian when I was 5 years old in kindergarten. Since then, I worked towards my goal, volunteering locally with cats, dogs, horses, and raptors.

I graduated from San Diego State University summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and was chosen as the “Outstanding Graduate” for the school’s Biology department. I then went on to obtain my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and graduated in 2020. Shortly after graduation, I returned to Chula Vista and joined the Otay Pet Vets family to create long-lasting relationships with clients, working together to gain the information and give the care needed so that they and their pets can live happy and healthy lives. My areas of clinical interest include Dermatology, Behavior, Nutrition, and Exotics.

In my spare time, my hobbies include drawing, singing, playing video games, bingeing shows, finding new places to eat, sewing costumes, and going to conventions, especially San Diego Comic Con!
