Dr. Finnen is a medical neurologist who enjoys managing difficult epileptics and inflammatory CNS diseases. She also loves diagnostic imaging and the challenges of the physics and interpretation of MRI.

She has a family that keeps her continually busy but finds relaxation time in horseback riding. With her background and love of horses, she offers on-farm consultations for neurological horses outside of her small animal clinic hours.

Karmen and Cappuccino are both 1/2 Dachshunds, and she has two horses, Gerry and Poppy. Cappuccino is active in film, and you may have seen her in some commercials (CIBC, Trident, Etsy) and TV shows (See No Evil, Hardy Boys) or even at the Superdog shows!
