Specialties:Veterinary health 

About Me

My extension effort is directed towards livestock producers in Utah, surrounding region, and the United States. Programs include livestock health, strengthening community agrosecurity planning, and veterinary continuing education. On occasion I assist producers and veterinarians with interesting and unique diagnostic cases.

My most recent program and research involves bulk tank milk sampling for BVDv, Johne’s, and Mycoplasma. These three diseases can cause tremendous loss to dairy producers. Since 2010 I have worked with Utah beginning farmers and ranchers to increase their profitability and was awarded a $750,000 NIFA grant in 2010 to help accomplish this.

My extension and research is supported through extension funding and competitive grants.

In 1997, I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Kansas State University. Prior to completion of the DVM requirements, I obtained BS and MS degrees from Utah State University in 1991 and 1996, respectively. My MS degree focused on the parasite interaction between cattle and sheep grazing together on Utah high-mountain pastures. Following graduation from KSU, I was a mixed animal practitioner in Coos Bay, Oregon and Riverton, Utah. In 2003, I was appointed the Vermont State Veterinarian and Chief Animal Health Officer. In this role I oversaw all aspects of regulatory medicine and animal health in Vermont. With the desire to move closer to family, I took a position as the extension veterinarian and associate veterinarian within the ADVS department at USU. My interests include teaching (Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals, Equine Nutrition, and Public Health) along with research in diseases of importance to livestock production and health. I also hold an adjunct faculty position within the college of veterinary medicine at Washington State University.
