Dr. Emily has wanted to be a veterinarian since the 3rd grade, after her dad mentioned that she was pretty good with the family pets. She worked at veterinary clinics throughout her high school weekends in Ohio, before attending The Ohio State University for her undergraduate and veterinary school degrees. She moved to Southwestern Iowa in 2008 with her now-husband to practice mixed animal medicine. After 4 years, she headed into town to a predominately small animal clinic. She's decided to start her own practice in Omaha after seven years, and she is SO excited to care for you and your pets! Dr. Emily and her husband have 2 dogs, 3 indoor cats, a bunch of barn cats (more show up every day, right?), and some chickens on their acreage. In her free time (ha!), she loves to garden/landscape (native plants only, please), read voraciously, prep for the apocalypse, and build furniture as a novice.
