Christine graduated with honours from Cal Poly Pomona (USA) in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. She then completed her veterinary degree with honours at Edinburgh University in 2017. From there she undertook a rotating small animal internship at VCA West Hollywood where she gained experience with advanced oncologic treatments including hematopoietic stem cell transplants for lymphoma patients. She then returned to the University of Edinburgh for a combined four year residency in Small Animal Oncology and a Master’s degree in Veterinary Medicine. Christine joined Willows’ Oncology team in August 2022.
Her goals as an Oncologist are to improve her patient’s quality of life with treatment plans tailored to each patient and family. She is not above bribing pets and always has some biscuits or dreamies tucked away! She has a special interest in comparative oncology and palliative care.
A California native, Christine loves sunshine, travelling, linocutting, and spending time with her fox red Labrador, two cats, and five ducks.
