Dr. Dana completed both her undergraduate course work and veterinary degree in her hometown of Madison at the University of Wisconsin. Following graduation, she and her husband, Alex, made the move west to Tacoma to start a new adventure and have never looked back! She and Alex share their home with two goofy cats – Dr. Seuss, a buff orange tabby, and Theo, a Siamese tabby mix.

Dr. Dana is certified in veterinary medical acupuncture, which she loves to incorporate into the treatment of orthopedic and neurologic pain cases. She finds it especially rewarding to see the improvement in quality of life for her senior patients with chronic pain. Her favorite part of her job is getting to form a special bond with her patients and their families. Outside of work on a sunny day you’re likely to find Dr. Dana hiking, rock climbing, or landscaping, but when the rain rolls in you’ll find her snuggled on the couch with her cats and a good book.
