University's (CSU) College of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and
surgery at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Her chosen career in Radiation Oncology led Dr.

caring and ethical decision in the best interest of each patient and owner.
