Ava always dreamed of a career in which she could care for animals, and during her college years she decided once and for all that she wanted to become a veterinarian. She is a recent graduate from Oberlin College, where she studied Biology and Studio Art. Her animal experience ranges from pet care to research to conservation fieldwork, having worked with cats, dogs, South American opossums, and wild Common Tern seabirds. As a new member of the Heart of Chelsea Veterinary Group, she is excited to share her passion with her fellow doctors and co-workers, and to meet you and your pet! She will make sure your visit is positive and comfortable. In her free time, she loves to cuddle with her two cats and to make ceramics at her local pottery studio.
