She began working with cattle and other farm animals at NMSU and completed a summer internship at Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska. At Doorly, she focused on developing animal diets in the nutrition lab. She entered veterinary school at Colorado State University, where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. While at CSU, she interned at a large and small animal practice in Washington State.
