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 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.
I am a South Florida native who spent many years in the Northeast before moving back to the “no snow zone”. After 20+ years in human healthcare, I decided to focus on the more technical aspects of care and graduated from Indian River State College with an associate degree in electronics engineering technology, including biomedical electronics and photonics (the science of light). Fast forward a few years, and the experience of nursing several of my dogs through various illnesses and end of life care led me to change focus from providing human care to animal care. Along the way I have obtained training in companion animal laser therapy, canine Hospice and Palliative Care, Pet First Aid, and CPR. I enjoy exploring the beautiful outdoors with my husband and our 2 “grey muzzles”, Ralphie & Lola.
I grew up in south Florida and I’m currently enrolled in Indian River State College to become a Certified Veterinarian Technician. I have three crazy dogs mako (pit bull-mix), Bella (pit bull), Lucy (lab). I enjoy spending my free time riding ATVs as much as possible, spending time with my family and my dogs
