After that, she completed a rotating surgery and animal medicine internship and then an oncology residency at the University of Pennsylvania.  She obtained her board certification in oncology in 2015.  She then became a registered herbalist in 2018 after going through a rigorous program and that's the highest accreditation for human herbalism.  She serves on the American Board of Vetinary Botanical Medicine.  She has founded the integrated veterinary oncology wellness center in Red Bank, New Jersey where she helps pets every day!
