Fear Free Certified – Level 2
I am the founder and proprietor of Danville Veterinary Hospital. I have and will continue to work diligently to create a comfortable environment where you and your pet feel welcome. I am honored that you are taking the time to find out more about the hospital and staff.

When I was young, I was taught to love and treat all animals with respect and compassion. I received my first dog when I was about 3 years old and we grew up together. My parents would take him to the veterinarian and I remember wanting to help not only him but all of the other animals as well. When I was 13, I started my first job with that very same veterinarian. My duties at the clinic included cleaning kennels, assisting in appointments, and observing surgical procedures. My passion for veterinary medicine flourished as I continued to learn more.

I attended Purdue University, majored in science, and eventually applied and was accepted to veterinary school. In 2007, I graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. The first position I held as a new graduate was as an overnight emergency doctor in a busy specialty hospital. This was a difficult job coming straight out of school, but I learned how to handle some of the most critical cases and stressful situations. I worked there for two years until I decided to try out my entrepreneurial skills and start my own business as a relief veterinarian. That entailed traveling to a variety of hospitals and clinics all over the state and filling in for their veterinarians while they were on vacation, out sick, or attending continuing education. I kept a notebook of my experiences, everything from hospital flow to employee training. I knew I wanted to open my own hospital and planned to take the best pieces of all the places I had worked and incorporated them into my own design. In 2011, my ideas, notes, and years of planning finally came to fruition when I opened Danville Veterinary Hospital.

I love the Danville community and am proud to call it my home. I bought a home here in 2013 and in December 2016 I married my husband, Eli. He joined my existing family of four rescue dogs. We have two Saint Bernards, Rocco and Sydney, and two golden retrievers, Gordon and Zoey; all of whom we spoil rotten. My most treasured companion though, the dog who was with me from high school to vet school through job changes and starting my own practice, was Winchester. He was my best friend and further reinforced my childhood passion for animals. Although he is no longer with me, his spirit is woven within this hospital and into the care, we provide to all of our patients.

To honor Winchester and his legacy, I promise to treat you and your pets with care and compassion and look forward to meeting you.

Thank you for your interest in Danville Veterinary Hospital! I am thrilled to be a member of this amazing team and wonderful hospital. My goal is to continue DVH’s growth so that we may be able to provide the best veterinary care and customer service to you and your loved ones.

I always knew that I wanted to be in the veterinary field because of my strong love for animals. To further pursue my passion, I attended Purdue University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Technology with my focus in oncology and anesthesia. From there, I spent years as an Oncology Registered Veterinary Technician where I then was given the opportunity to help build a Veterinary Oncology Hospital in Chicago. At that time, I was able to pursue my certification as a Veterinary Practice Manager and obtained my CVPM in 2016. My varied experiences have allowed me to deal with all areas of our veterinary hospital.

My husband grew up in Danville and encouraged my move to this great town. We live in the country with our Bernese Mountain Dog, Willow and our two cats, Jack and Pearl. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, hiking, running, gardening and sitting around the bonfire!

As a member of the wonderful staff of Danville Veterinary Hospital, I look forward to working with you and your special pets.

DVH Reception Team


Fear Free Certified – Level 1
I am so excited to be a part of the Danville Veterinary Hospital team! I grew up in Pendleton, Indiana, but I now call Bainbridge, Indiana, my home. I live with my wonderful husband, Patrick our daughter Marley and our grandson Daylan. I have two sons, Ian and Phillip and two more grandchildren Ayla and Cash.

We are all huge animal lovers and have a home full of pets, starting with Sampson our 200-pound Mastiff. He may be scary-looking but don’t let him fool you as he is a huge baby and still considers himself a lap dog. Our other dog Bullet is the feisty one in the family. We also have several barn cats that come and go.

Though my past employment includes a law firm, an elementary school, and a construction company, I realized that animals are my true calling. Spending my days with animals and their humans who love them so much is exactly what I was meant to do. Thankfully, DVH has given me the opportunity to do just that.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your pets
