Being a member of the ALVMA has made such a difference to my professional life. Not only have I met a wealth of extraordinary veterinarians across the state for whom I can turn to for medical and career advice, but I have used the resources and knowledge of the ALVMA to navigate confusing legal and economic issues within the local veterinary field. I’m also so grateful for the advocacy work the ALVMA has done over the years to make working as a veterinarian both safer and more efficient.

I joined the ALVMA immediately after graduation in 2018. It afforded me the unique opportunity to become directly involved with the veterinary community through the Power of Ten program, which in turn, encouraged me to join the ALVLMA board as the Student Liaison to Alabama’s veterinary schools. I have loved sharing my passion for this career with the veterinary students and continuing to grow my connections at ALVMA. I look forward to continuing to serve my community, the veterinary students and this profession with the ALVMA.
