Joel lives in Hinesburg, Vermont and feels lucky to practice veterinary medicine in the greater Burlington area. After graduating from Connecticut College, he received his veterinary degree from Cornell University in 2005. While in veterinary school, he was inducted into Phi Zeta, the national veterinary honor society. After working for a year in the Syracuse area while his wife finished veterinary school, he returned home to Vermont and joined the River Cove family. Joel thrives on the variety that veterinary medicine brings. He loves helping animals while cherishing his relationships with their owners. He and his wife, Jenny, have a son named Townsend and a daughter named Mabel. They share their home with three dogs, Tizzik, Taiga, and Potter. He also has a cat named Artemis and one horse, Regie. When not at the office, Joel can be found spending time with his family or in the woods with his dogs.
