I was born and raised in South Florida where I received my undergraduate degree in biology at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Florida. I was accepted into veterinary school at Iowa State University where I graduated from in 2020. I decided I love corn fields so much, so I moved to Illinois for a small animal rotating internship at VCA Aurora in Aurora, Illinois. In my off time I enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, exploring state parks and national parks, and relaxing. I live with my girlfriend, Abby, who is an ER veterinary technician, and our 4 rescue pups (Albert, Arlo, Kaya, and Gulliver) and 3 cats (Winifred, Echo, and Sebastian).
