Your Visiting Veterinarian was born out of my own experience with vet trips for my cat (named Squish). The car ride, the noises and smells of the clinic, and seeing other dogs and cats caused her so much fear, anxiety, and stress that even with anti-anxiety medication on board, she had to be completely sedated to get a vaccination. When I started taking her vaccines home from the clinic to administer them myself within the comfort of her home, it was an eye-opening experience. No stress or sedation for her and no stress for me. I knew many other pets could benefit from home visits.
Making vet visits fun with experienced and compassionate care.

My passion for animals and veterinary medicine started as a young child. My mom tells me that at the age of three I wanted to be a doctor for animals and I never changed my mind. When I was in the seventh grade, I shadowed a veterinarian for the first time.
That initial shadowing experience led to thousands of hours of experience learning about companion and exotic animal medicine over the next several years. As an undergraduate student, I worked at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in an oncology research laboratory. After a couple of years there assisting in research projects, I was given my own research project studying tumor suppressor gene expression in canine osteosarcoma which is a type of bone cancer. I presented this research at two forums, receiving first place at one of them. My manuscript was submitted for publication in the Journal of Veterinary Pathology.
I was accepted into The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2016. Before starting Your Visiting Veterinarian, I worked at a private practice seeing countless species of animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, sugar gliders, ferrets, mice, gerbils, and many birds, reptiles, and amphibians.

A Little Note About Treats
We love to give treats! If your pet has special dietary restrictions, please have your treats available for us to give. This will help your pet stay relaxed and enjoy any uncomfortable parts of the visit – like vaccines and blood draws. Please also let us know if there are any treats, such as peanut butter, that we should not bring into your home. If anyone in your home has a peanut allergy, we will be a peanut-butter-free clinic that day.
