Although an Oklahoma native, Andrew knew nothing about horses when he began working on a beef cattle ranch at the young age of 14. In four and half years he worked his way up to processing and doctoring wheat pasture cattle and dragging calves. This led to finding his way into rodeo – both team roping and calf roping, and eventually cutting while working for a cutting horse trainer before attending vet school at Oklahoma State University. Andrew always thought he wanted to be a mixed practice veterinarian, until he spent a day with Dr. Todd Holbrook during his mini-clinics rotations. After witnessing Dr. Holbrook evaluate a critical patient, Andrew knew that he wanted to practice equine medicine, telling Dr. Holbrook, “I want to do what you do!” Nominated by Dr. Holbrook, Andrew was awarded the Zoetis Equine Scholarship Award for an externship, and chose BVEH. From that point on, Andrew says being a part of BVEH has been about ten years in the making as he had kept in touch with BVEH after the externship while finishing veterinary school. Andrew is most passionate about providing exceptional patient care to internal medicine cases and those in critical condition.
