Dr. Linda has always wanted to be a veterinarian since a very young age. She grew up in Missouri and spent her adolescence in Massachusetts working towards her goal. She was accepted to Cornell University, in beautiful upstate New York, where she received her Bachelor of Science. She then pursued research in diseases of dairy cattle and contributed to multiple published articles on the subject prior to being accepted to, and later receiving her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from, Cornell University’s Vet school.
Dr. Linda moved to Pueblo, Colorado after graduation and worked at a fast paced mixed animal general practice and after-hours emergency clinic prior to coming to South Mesa Veterinary Hospital. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine and is passionate about dentistry and surgery. She is excited about meeting new patients and clients in order to build relationships with, educate, and help care for their furry families.
In her free time Dr. Linda likes outdoor adventures with her husband Leland and Boxer pup Liam. They enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, biking, paddle-boarding, and on those bad weather days she likes to snuggle with her Sphynx cat Polina and read or do yoga. She also has a couple interesting pets including two desert tortoises and a tarantula.
