I’m the proud owner and veterinarian at Sulphur Springs Veterinary Clinic. I fell in love with East Texas and moved here after graduating from veterinary school in Missouri in 1997. I purchased the practice in 2014 after being an associate for a number of years in Wills Point and Forney. Sulphur Springs is the best place to be.

My greatest joy is helping people and their fur family by solving the medical problems they face.

I decided to become a veterinarian when I was a teenager after being amazed how our local vet would come out and treat the horses or cows. It seemed like the perfect fit, and I was hooked.

Initially, I did do mixed practice and saw anything that walked, but I’ve since limited my practice to companion animals. I still keep a few cows, chickens, and bees around the house to enjoy.

I’m married to my wonderful wife Rhonda who teaches school. Together we have 4 great kids.


Rena has been with SSVC since 2007. Her love for animal science and building relationships with people and their pets has kept her going. When she is not working, she enjoys being outside photographing nature and spending time with her family and pets.


Victoria began working at SSVC in 2015. She was the first person to greet you before taking a few years off to raise her 2 children. Now, you might catch her answering the phone, greeting clients or handling the business aspects of the practice. She enjoys spending time with her husband and children, along with caring for their Brahman and F-1 Cattle.
