About

"When I tell people I’m a veterinarian their typical response is, 'Oh, you must love working with dogs and cats!' Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs and cats (especially cats), but although I’m a vet by training, my job is far different from what most people think of when they hear the word 'veterinarian'. I didn’t grow up in a house full of pets or aspire to be a veterinarian from the time I was a young kid. In fact, it wasn’t until my senior year of college that I decided a passion for research and science did not have to equate to pursuing a Ph.D. or medical school degree.  

"I’ve spent many years studying and exploring the anatomic and microscopic features that differ amongst domestic species (dogs and cats) but also more non-traditional species such as marine mammals, farm animals, and exotics. As a comparative veterinary pathologist at Stanford, I provide collaborative research support to both physician- and basic-scientists who are working with animal models of human disease. In this role, I microscopically evaluate animal tissues and provide insight on topics including radiation oncology, novel medical imaging modalities, breast cancer, and many more. Studying comparative anatomy is an excellent way to gain an appreciation for the complexity and diversity of the many species we often take for granted."
