As a veterinary clinical pathologist at Kansas State University, I provide microscopic and data interpretations in the areas of cytology, hematology, clinical chemistry, urinalysis, coagulation, protein electrophoresis and bone marrow core biopsies to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and referring veterinarians from the state and around the country via the Diagnostic Laboratory.


I am involved in the teaching of fourth year veterinary students during their Diagnostic Medicine rotation in the areas of cytology and hematology with an emphasis on sample collection and preparation and microscopic evaluation and findings. I also participate in the clinical pathology residency training program.
