For over 20 years I have been blessed with the opportunity to practice doing what I love. As a veterinarian at Worth Street Veterinary Center, I am honored to help make a difference in the lives of pets and their human companions. During my training rotations at Tufts University, that concluded in 2000, I became aware of the concept of integrative veterinary medicine: the combination of conventional medicine with holistic treatments to promote optimal health.

Following my older sister’s footsteps into a career in science, I found the role of veterinarian to match my compassion for animals, meticulous attention to detail, and general enjoyment of working with people. In pursuit of this goal, I earned my undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Southern California, and went on to attend veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania…

My career in animal science was precipitated by a genuine love and compassion for all living creatures that harkens back to my teenage years when I became active in companion animal sheltering. What started out as training small animals and cleaning kennels in shelters eventually evolved into a career in veterinary medicine that I’ve proudly practiced for nearly 10 years…
