Teaching Interests

My teaching interest focuses on challenging students to think critically and strive to make a difference in the lives of their patients. I work with them to help think outside the box of allopathic medicine as they go into practice.   I also enjoy helping each student to recognize different ways to stay grounded and maintain their mental health as they move forward in their career as veterinarians. Lastly, I am dedicated to coaching my students to ensure all patients are as comfortable as possible throughout their care, as well as addressing the different components of nutrition with all clients.
