Old wobbly dogs and skinny cats are my JAM! I adore geriatric pets and the families that care for them. I'm a tech nerd and spent 10 years developing software before becoming a veterinarian in my 30's. I co-founded Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice which provides in-home end of life care services around the country - we currently employ over 140 vets in 30 states. I led the development of our proprietary practice management software as well as an app to assess quality of life, an online hospice journaling software, a crematory management software as well as a platform for teleconsutling between GP vets and Specialists. And when I didn't have anymore space in my life, I opened a pet crematory with my brother. Developing tech solutions for the veterinary industry is a passion of mine but at the same time, I love geriatric medicine, hospice and all aspects of end of life care. Hobbies? If I have time, I love playing golf. Otherwise, I look forward to eating pasta as often as possible.
