I completed a B.S. degree in Animal Sciences/Pre-Veterinary Medicine from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. After spending some time working as a veterinary technician I was given an opportunity to explore the field of Laboratory Animal Research. Since that time I have worked to continue acquiring skills and certifications. Currently I am certified through AALAS at the LATg level and continue to earn credits to remain a registered participant.

My expertise is primarily focused on various aspects of animal husbandry
and rodent surgical procedures.
