Originally from Ridgefield, CT, my parents moved our family to Seoul, S. Korea when I was an adolescent girl. Not the easiest transition for a small town American girl at that awkward age without any knowledge of the Korean language or culture. However, I adjusted quickly and grew to love the Korean culture and their food. I graduated high school with a multitude of life-long friends and a penchant for Korean food.

I zigzagged across the world and later found myself back in Korea where I met my future husband who was stationed there with the US Army (go Army). We relocated to Ft. Hood, Texas where my husband finished his active duty status. We eventually made our way to College Station for vet school and I graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Family matters then moved us to the great state of North Carolina where I devotedly began my veterinary career.

I have four very spoiled dogs and one cat at home. Eve (Evil as we like to call her) and Mojo (The Mojinator), a brother/sister pair of beagle/Rottweiler mixes, were left abandoned at the local shelter at only one day old. Now twelve years old, they are our senior pets. We also have Moosie, a 7-year-old Rottweiler (whom my husband whole heartedly believes plots daily on my husband’s demise). Our other Rottweiler, Elcie, shares my passion for running and is my faithful early morning partner as seen pictured with me here (I am a little scared about what would happen if she didn’t exercise!). Although, I honestly think the only reason that she is excited to run is so she can frolic in the sprinklers.

I recently left my first hospital where I was the Chief of Staff in a multi-doctor veterinary practice to join Mixed Pet. My husband of 16 years and I still live in the Huntersville area and enjoy close access to Lake Norman and other recreational endeavors. I am enthusiastic about my new journey and also to meet many new faces. So drop in, introduce yourself and say hi.
