I am a native New Mexican. I have 3 dogs and 1 cat. I have had animals all my life. To me, “A house is not a home” without pets.

Medical Interests

I have always admired veterinarians. They have to figure out what’s wrong, even when the patient can’t tell them.



Nicole has worked in the veterinary field for 3 years. She was previously a livestock inspector and is excited to be back in the veterinary field again. Nicole grew up showing horses, goats, chickens, ducks, pigs. She also competed in rodeo events. Nicole and her boyfriend have 2 horses, 5 dogs and a small Nigerian Dwarf goat herd that they love. They enjoy family gatherings, hunting, rodeo and playing with their dogs and goats.
