She enjoys working with "senior" pets helping owners maintain good quality of life, dermatology, behavioral health, weight management, and preventive health care.
In her spare time she enjoys yoga, participates in the Big Brother Big Sister program and she and her husband Byron are members of the Kiwanis . Byron's passion for Kiwanis is only rivaled by his love of Hawkeye Basketball!
Dr. Tabor and Byron share their home with two dogs Coda and Melody. Coda and Melody are dedicated "personal trainers" making sure their humans get out almost daily for a walk or run. Coda is always looking for someone to ask him for a trick so he can get a reward.
