Biography: I graduated from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994, then completed a small animal internship at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. After working in emergency medicine for over 4 years in the San Francisco bay area, I completed a surgical internship at the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center in 1999 in Dallas, Texas. I subsequently earned a PhD in veterinary physiology and completed a small animal surgery residency at Texas A&M University, College of Veterinary Medicine (1999-2005). I became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2007 and a diplomate of the Amercian College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation in 2013. I was tenured at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine and was there from 2005 to 2016. In 2011, I have been a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (from the University of Tennessee Rehabilitation Certification Course) since 2012. Currently, my position at Massey University, as an Associate Professor entails teaching, clinical work and research in small animal surgery and I am working to develop the sports medicine and rehabilitation service and research at the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The Working Dog Centre at Massey is a tremendous opportunity to further knowledge, services and training for veterinarians interested in this relatively new and exciting field of veterinary medicine and I am excited to be part of the team to continue its development. My research includes oxidant stress in sporting dogs, bone healing using omental grafting, tendon and ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, and elbow collateral ligament dysfunction in elbow dysplasia.
