Thank you for visiting my site. I have been working, full time, in Veterinary Physical Rehabilitation and Conditioning for over 15 years. I started out working in a veterinary general practice in the early 90’s, became a little bored and decided to go to school for human massage therapy. While in school I worked as a technician at a very busy veterinary ER. I was offered an overnight, critical care position at the first veterinary referral hospital in my area. Much of my job there was caring for animals suffering from intervertebral disc disease(IVDD), and back then there was no real physical therapy services provided for these patients. I researched the subject and found only a few facilities providing such services in the USA and decided that is what I wanted to do. I opened my first service there and a few years later became certified in canine rehabilitation form he University of Tennessee. This service did very well and introduced me to not only the vast veterinary world of orthopedic and neurologic pithily but also sports medicine.
Currently I supervise and facilitate exercise therapies at the Medvet Mandeville location and see cases daily. I also love to travel as well as spread the word about how animals can exercise using positive reinforcement training techniques. If you would like me to visit your veterinary practice or training facility, please visit my contact page. Have a great day and always remember to keep training and exercise positive and fun!
