Growing up with Thoroughbred horses and spending my summers on the backstretch of racetracks in Arizona, California, and Caliente, Mexico, I developed an interest in Equine veterinary medicine at the age of twelve.
After working several summers in Newmarket, England and receiving the C.T.B.A. scholarship for outstanding Equine Veterinary student in my junior year at U.C. Davis, I earned my D.V.M. degree in 1976.
Instead of returning to the racetrack, I chose to start my veterinary career as a farm practitioner in Santa Ynez Valley, California. Large Thoroughbred farms were my specialty, and allowed me to develop expertise in areas of reproduction, pediatrics, and surgery. Eventually I became resident Veterinarian for Cardiff Stud Farm in Creston., California, one of California’s premier breeding and training facilities at the time.
In 1992, I moved to Grass Valley and started a mobile equine practice servicing Nevada and Placer counties. After taking a brief break from Veterinary medicine, I returned in 2005 on a part time basis in a local group large animal practice.
Since restarting my solo equine practice this year, I find that I am caring for many of the same patients and friends I had serviced since 1992. I am happy to be back on my own so that I can provide a more personal service to my clients and their horses.
My mission is to provide reliable, progressive and compassionate service at a fair price to all horse owners.
