I grew up in Newport News, but currently reside in James City County. My wife Kirsten and I moved here after I had graduated from veterinary school.  It didn't take long for us to realize what a great community this is, and how much this region has to offer.  We enjoy going on hikes, getaways to the Outer Banks, boating, and spending time with family and friends.

Taking care of pets has always been a part of my life…even before I could walk. Back in the seventies, my dad was essentially the local James Harriot. When he got off of work, he would take my mom and I on farm calls to treat the sick animals.

Outside of general veterinary primary care and preventive medicine, I have special interests in physical rehabilitation, emergency and critical care medicine, dentistry/oral surgery, pain management, anesthesia, and disaster medicine.  I have received a certification from The University of Tennessee in physical rehabilitation.

I chose a career in veterinary medicine so that I would have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of pets as well as their human counterparts. Every day presents new challenges that need to be dealt with appropriately to ensure the best care for the patient. Our patients depend on us to provide the best in animal care that is currently available.
