I was born in Globe Arizona and raised in the White Mountains of eastern central Arizona. After graduating from the University of Arizona I received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Colorado State University in 1969. I practiced mixed large animal, small animal and emergency/critical care medicine and surgery in the Greater Phoenix Area for 13 years. In 1980 I moved to the Verde Valley where I continued to practice small animal medicine and surgery for the next 10 years while also continuing emergency critical care in Phoenix and starting my holistic career. In 1990 I started All Pets Acupuncture & Holistic Health Clinic, veterinary relief practice and continued emergency critical care practice in Phoenix.
In my spare time I love to garden, hike, cross country ski, cater to my too numerous pets and study holistic medicine. I also support my wife's passion for animal hospice.
