I literally was raised in this profession as Veterinary Medicine was very much the “family business”. My father and my brother both were Veterinarians and my mother kept the books. I have practiced all over the country to include Tennessee, Kentucky, Oregon and Northern Virginia before joining the Professional Services Veterinary Team at Pfizer/Zoetis Animal Health in Maryland for thirteen years. In December 2014, I found my “forever home” here in Santa Rosa Beach and I worked for Banfield for one year. I have had a very unique and diverse career thus far and I completely understand the business side of veterinary medicine. I appreciate the challenges that Veterinarians face as “small business owners” with the ever-evolving landscape. I am passionate about client education, communication, and improving compliance as it relates to Preventative Veterinary Care.
I started Doc Martin’s Relief Veterinary Services, LLC in 2016 so that I can continue to pursue my passion for both Veterinary Medicine and to enjoy my “forever home” here on the Emerald Coast.
