Welcome to my site!

Good news! My article for Bark Magazine, A Veterinarian’s Prescription for Grief (or, How I Mourned My Own Dog) has been nominated as a finalist in the Dog Writer’s Association of America writing contest!

I am a holistic veterinarian who also writes about pet loss, grief, the human-animal bond, and holistic veterinary medicine.  I am currently working on a memoir about my experiences both as a pet owner and as a veterinarian.  In the picture above, I have just inserted acupuncture needles into a dog during a home visit.
