I grew up in central western Pennsylvania, attending Penn State for my undergraduate education and the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, I practiced near State College for a year before moving to the Shippensburg area. While I enjoy all aspects of mixed animal practice, I have a special interest in small animal dermatology and bovine herd health work. My wife and I live in Carlisle with two cats and a dog. During my free time, I enjoy hiking, playing my guitar, skiing, and spending time with my family and friends.
