Dr. Smith grew up outside of Washington DC, where she discovered her love for animals at a young age. She worked as a veterinary technician for many years in her home town and decided she wanted to continue on to become a veterinarian. She completed her Bachelors of Science in Biology at James Madison University, then relocated to Mississippi where she completed her veterinary education. After graduation, she completed a rotating small animal internship in Southern Florida and now has joined the Emergency and Critical Care team here at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists. Her clinical interests include Addison’s disease and other endocrinopathies, coagulopathies, and transfusion medicine. When she’s not working, Dr. Smith loves spending time snuggling with her two cats, Daisy and Dewey, and her dog, Cash.
