I was born and raised in Southern California. I graduated from the University of Nevada-Reno with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science and received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Parker University in 2014. I am certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association as an Animal Chiropractor. I moved to Louisiana when my husband and I opened our chiropractic clinic in Westlake. I joined the staff of Bayou South Animal Hospital in 2015 and have been tending to their patient's chiropractic needs since then. I enjoy spending quality time with my family, playing with my dogs, and riding my horses.
