Mark, a native of upstate NY, obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the State University of New York at Geneseo. He then earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University in 1995 and, in 2013, his MBA from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. Mark was a partner for several years in a multi-doctor small animal practice before leaving to start his own mobile ultrasonography business. More recently, Mark worked as an Emergency Veterinarian at a local referral hospital. He was named by his peers as one of the Top Veterinarians in Northern Virginia, holds multiple patents, and is a published author. Mark and his co-founders were business school classmates from 2012-2013 where Vitus started as a team project. Vitus is a collaborative venture between people with very diverse backgrounds and expertise, and is now a growing company with one simple goal: to make it easier for veterinarians and pet owners to share information. Mark lives in Urbana, Maryland with his wife, three children, two cats, two dogs, and a rabbit.
