- Clinical Associate Professor, Small Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
My career in veterinary dermatology has focused mainly on patient care (small and large animal), teaching veterinary students the basic tenets of clinical dermatology using a problem and pattern-based approach, the scholarship of applied medical sciences (e.g., continuing education, publishing review articles, book, and book chapters), and multi-discipline collaborative research. In addition to these roles, I serve on several graduate student committees and provide specialty-level training to residents seeking to be boarded dermatologists. Lastly, I promote my specialty through my elected positions in the American College of Veterinary Dermatology.
