Born the oldest of five boys, I spent the majority of my time as a boy playing in the woods of Maine. It was during this time that I fell in love with nature, science and most of all animals. All through grade school I was determined to be a scientist but fell in love with medicine as soon as I started college at the University of Maine in Orono. I graduated from UMO with a B.S. in Biology in May of 2005 and by August I was living in the Eastern Caribbean nation of Grenada, where I attended St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine, and met the love my life. After three years of classroom training and island living I left Grenada and moved to Knoxville, Tennessee to complete the clinical portion of my veterinary schooling. After a year of intense clinical work I moved to East Dorset, Vermont and began working at Riverside Veterinary Care on River Street in Rutland. In March, 2010 I married the love of my life, who is also a veterinarian at Green Mountain Veterinary Hospital in Manchester. We are still in East Dorset with our two cats and three dogs.
