Nora grew up on a small farm in central Pennsylvania and could always be found out in the barn with the horses. She knew she wanted to be an equine vet from a young age. She loves spending time with her husband, David, and daughter, Sally and doing almost anything outside (riding, hiking, running, snowboarding, kayaking) in beautiful CA as well as playing music.
Nora’s professional interests include internal medicine (especially endocrine disease, neonatal medicine, ultrasound, and cardiology), laminitis, and preventive herd health. She has written and edited numerous peer-reviewed veterinary articles and contributed to—or edited—several veterinary text books and is an active volunteer in many veterinary organizations.
