We have a highly skilled and dedicated veterinary staff here at Highlands-Eldorado Veterinary Hospital. In addition to their medical and surgical expertise, we insist that our doctors have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. We believe that it is important for our clients to have the appropriate information to evaluate and assist in the care of their non-human family members.

I have two children, Krista, who participates in competitive cheerleading, and Tyler, who enjoys soccer and plays for the FC Dallas Youth Academy. I am also very fortunate to coach a Special Athletes cheer team. I have a pair of chihuahuas, Daisy and Dee Dee, a pair of cats, Monte and Lyssa along with a quaker parakeet named Bug. During my free time I enjoy hiking, bird watching or just sitting back and reading a good book.
