I am a small animal veterinarian and owner of All Creatures Veterinary Clinic in Lower Gwynedd. I am married with two children, Jack (12) and Flynn (7). I enjoy bicycling, motorcycling, swimming in the ocean and any outdoor activities with my family. My children and I also attend many Philadelphia sporting events together.
I started training in martial arts when I joined Yang’s Martial Arts School in May of 2009. Through training I have benefited both physically and mentally. I have learned to control stress and anxiety in day to day life through martial arts. Most importantly I have learned to appreciate everyone and everything around me so much more than I did before.
I enjoy teaching classes, especially children. I love to see the self confidence and strength that even the most shy and introverted child gains through training in martial arts.
