"I have always had a deep love and respect for animals. I remember as a young boy bringing home and “rescuing” everything from dogs and cats to lizards, birds, and insects much to my mother’s chagrin! After spending some time in general practice, I was fortunate to get the opportunity to come to Woodlands Veterinary Hospital & Animal Dental Centre. Woodland’s has provided me with the framework from which I can continue to learn and grow in my pursuit of veterinary excellence. My spare time is spent volunteering for different rescue groups evaluating behaviour in dogs, sitting on the board of directors of several dog related organizations, judging for the Agility Association of Canada and actively competing at the national level in several different dog sports. I look forward to working with you to enhance the relationship between you and your pet while always staying focused on maintaining your pet’s optimum health.
