In 2011 I received a Bachelors of Science in Molecular and Cell Biology from Texas A&M University (College Station, TX). Following my undergraduate career I received a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Oklahoma State University (Stillwater, OK) in 2016. The consecutive years I completed two rotating equine surgery, medicine, and theriogenology internships at Idaho Equine Hospital (Nampa, ID) from 2016-2017 and Oklahoma State University from 2017-2018. In 2018 I began a large animal surgical residency at Kansas State University (Manhattan, KS) and concurrently received a Masters of Science in Veterinary Biomedical Sciences in 2021. Following my residency I will stay on as a Clinical Assistant Professor and the Large Animal Emergency Clinician at KSU.
My current research topics include evaluating the in vitro antimicrobial effects of multiple regenerative therapies including equine mesenchymal stromal cells and platelet lysate. Previous studies consisted of testing the efficacy of plasma sterilization and the live animal tissue effects of metallic implants that have undergone this sterilization technique.
