Specializing in Nutritional Consultations via Telehealth !
Dr. Sue fell in love with veterinary medicine while working in Fairbanks, AK with all kinds of animals, including Iditarod sled dogs. She received her veterinary degree from Washington State University in 1997. After graduating, she worked in conventional small animal practice for over a decade before whole food nutrition and wholistic care became a game-changer for her pets and her pet patients.
In 2017 she opened Thrive , creating a unique environment to help as many pets as possible heal, stay well and live optimal lives. In January of 2023 Thrive has moved to primarily telehealth to provide nutritional help for animals everywhere.
Dr. Sue is certified in Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture and food therapy and is an advanced trained Nutrition Response Testing practitioner. She is also on the Board of Directors for the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA) and lectures both nationally and locally.
At home her animal family includes two rescue dogs, Rush and Jenny, and two older sassy cats – Lillian and Moe. She is an avid cyclist, and she loves making and eating good food.
