I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1983 and opened the hospital in 1985. I grew up in Decatur, Illinois, but headed to Texas the day. after graduation to start practicing in Houston. I've been very blessed in my profession and feel the same dedication towards quality small animal medicine and surgery that I did 37 years ago. I am married to John Milan and together we are developing a Texas native wildlife ranch near La Grange. I enjoy farm and ranch management, gardening, and caring for our menagerie at our farm in Brookshire, including 2 horses, 13 chickens, 3 cats, 2 dogs, and a finch. I am very appreciative that I continue to get to do what I love.
