I am a 2007 graduate from the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine and have been in general practice since that time. I grew up in rural Emden, Illinois.
Before joining the Green Prairie San Jose team as an Associate Veterinarian in October of 2013, I began working at Green Prairie San Jose (formerly known as Greenhaven) in high school as an assistant. From there I went on to college to study veterinary medicine. Before Green Prairie, I have worked in a mixed practice in western Illinois and a small animal practice in southern Illinois. My professional interests include small animal internal medicine and large animal herd health.
I am married to my beautiful wife, Elizabeth, and have two young daughters. My pets include Chief, a black lab who thinks he is human and Suzy, a rambunctious yellow lab with no manners. With my little remaining free time I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, gardening and hunting. I am excited to return to Central Illinois and look forward to serving our clients.
