Dr. Amber grew up in South Florida and started working at a veterinary clinic when she was 16 years old. She attended Florida Atlantic University (Go Owls!) and after graduation, took a 3-month break and did an internship with chimpanzees. She then attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and clinical training at the University of Florida Veterinary School.
After practicing for several years, Dr. Amber realized the need for more comprehensive pain management in her patients. This is when she became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT). Dr. Amber is a member of the American Association of Rehab Veterinarians, International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, and the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care. Dr. Amber is also the district captain for government relations for the ASPCA.
As the founding veterinarian of Treasure Coast Animal Rehab and Fitness, she is able to dedicate her time and attention to improving the quality of life of her patients and the quality of the family bond.
I have a great love for animals of all kinds. I have three rescue pets at home, 2 dogs named Emma and Betty Boop and Snickers the cat who loves to play fetch. I am very happy to be a part of the Treasure Coast Animal Rehab family. Their dedication to helping fur babies in need gives me great satisfaction and allows me to share the love.
I grew up in Oregon and graduated with an associates of veterinary technology from Brown Mackie College. I then furthered my education and became a Certified Tech (CVT) in 2011. I have experience in emergency and specialty hospitals, as well as wildlife medicine. I enjoy spending time with my husband, a little girl, and 2 dogs.
