I graduated from Iowa State University in 1985. After working at clinics in Littleton and Black Forest, Colorado, I settled in Missoula with my wife, Mary in 1990, joining Dr. Conrad Orr at the Missoula Veterinary Clinic. Since then we have been blessed with 4 children, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, a grandchild, and the privilege to continue serving the Missoula community by helping care for animals both large and small.
My work currently is focused mostly with dogs, cats, and horses- including preventative care, medicine, general surgery and dentistry.
My family is the most important thing to me. I have a lovely wife of 35 years, 2 great children, a daughter-in-law, and a grandchild. My son is a graduate of the USMA in West Point, NY and is a 1st Lieutenant in the US Army . My daughter, a former level 10 gymnast in high school, is a college graduate and is currently working while traveling abroad. I love hiking, fishing, hunting, cross country skiing, white water rafting, triathlons and playing guitar. I feel blessed to live in a place like Missoula Montana and truly love my work and enjoy the great staff we have here at Missoula Veterinary Clinic.
My professional interests include soft tissue surgery, feline medicine and ultrasonography, and I enjoy mentoring students interested in veterinary medicine. I love living in Missoula with my husband Aaron, three cats and a dog . In my free time I enjoy hiking, being with family and friends, teaching my (not-so-old) dog new tricks, reading, skiing, playing the ukulele and volleyball.
I graduated from WSU’s veterinary teaching hospital in Pullman, WA, where my family lived for 12 years, before moving out to beautiful Montana. My lovely wife Katie and I have two children: Henry and Dora. We also share our house with three dogs (Maria, Two Dot, Rosie) and two cats (Penguin and Wee Lassie). Before veterinary school I managed the ICU at WSU’s VTH where I worked as a licensed technician with specialty in emergency and critical care medicine. My outside interests include playing, coaching and watching hockey, camping, and being with my family. It is a privilege for me to be able to provide excellent medical care for all of the wonderfully unique pets of Missoula.
I spent my childhood in Montana, and have yearned to return since I left for college in 1996. I received my BS in Biology from University of Puget Sound in 2000 (Tacoma, WA) and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University in 2007. I practiced primarily small animal medicine and surgery in Pullman, WA for seven years before returning home to the Big Sky Country in 2014. I strive to provide the best care possible for all animals and help people keep their pet’s healthy and happy with quality preventative care. I am particularly interested in dental health, internal medicine, ultrasonography, dermatology, behavior, and surgery. My husband Adam is also a practicing veterinarian and we have two children (Henry, 14 and Dora, 11). Completing the household are two senior mix-breed dogs (Maria, 15 and Two Dot, 9) and two kitties (Wee Lass and Penguin). I enjoy singing, acting and all things outdoors
