(Owner & Veterinarian)

He owns a brindle Great Dane named Willow, and a Drathaar named Nelli.
"For the past 11 years I very much enjoyed being a veterinarian and had the opportunity to work with a wonderful team at Oakdale. They enabled me to grow as a veterinarian and provided all of the diagnostic tools necessary to work on more advanced skills. As I grew comfortable, another passion began to develop inside me and I became more involved with my clients. Through this, I discovered that while I considered myself to be excelling at diagnostics and treatments… I was missing another part of a very important puzzle. That part was the owner. As I progressed in this train of thought, I realized that I really wanted to not only be an veterinarian, but also a business owner. 3 years ago I began my journey of working to create Mannsdale Animal Clinic in Madison, MS".
