She became a Master of Science by doing interdepartmental research with the departments of Biochemistry and Dairy Science from the University of Maryland. She then became a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University. For more than thirty years, her deep love of animals and the loving bonds that owners have with their pets continue to drive her to be the best veterinarian she can be.
