Growing up as a child in North Carolina I was surrounded and awed by many different species of animals. I cared for dogs, cats, cattle, rode horses and I always felt a special connection with all of them. When I decided to become a veterinarian I thought back to those times as a child and knew it was the right career path for me.Over the years, while attending undergraduate and Veterinary College at NC State University and working as a small animal practitioner, I’ve been exposed to many levels of animal comfort, joy, pain, and suffering. As a veterinarian, I feel one of my most important responsibilities is to help ease an animal’s suffering as well as provide support for a grieving owner. While it may seem like a difficult task, euthanasia is a kindness that we are able to give to our loving animal companions and I am proud to be able to provide such a service.I have had many pets of my own over the years and each one has been special to me. They have been constant companions throughout all the changes and milestones in my life. I know what it is like to love and lose a special friend, but I would not trade any of the moments I had with them. My goal is to help people understand that after sharing a life and home with their loving animal companion, they will love us for helping to make the kind decision to stop their pain and suffering. We can cherish and take comfort in remembering all the good times we had with our faithful animal friends.EMERGENCY CLINIC INFORMATION:Concord area- Cabarrus Emergency Veterinary Clinic 704-932-1182Carolina Veterinary Specialists:Huntersville- 704-949-1100Matthews- 704-815-3939Charlotte- 704-504-9608C-VETS- Matthews area 704-844-6440Animal Medical Hospital- 704-334-4684
