I was born and raised in Iran and moved to the United States (Nashville, TN) in 2004. I moved to Pensacola in 2009 to attend the Exotic Animal and Zoo technology at Pensacola State College and graduated with my A.S. in 2011, I received my Bachelor in Zoo Sciences from University of West Florida in 2013.
I was employed at Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo from 2009 to 2012, working with big cats, primates and other wild and exotic animals. I started my first veterinary job in 2012 with Dr. Peterson. My husband and I have 2 beautiful girls, 2 senior cats, and 1 energetic dog.
