“Dr. Lindsay” sites Herndon, VA as her hometown; however, she grew up in a military family whose frequent moves precluded owning any permanent family pets as a young child. She was able to indulge her love of animals by “adopting” the neighborhood animals, volunteering at animal rescue shelters/kennels. Upon her father’s retirement, she enjoyed the company of her family dog, a Shetland sheepdog named Jessie, and family cat named Tim-Tim who lived with her through veterinary school to the rip age of 19. She was also an equestrian, competing in hunter and eventing competitions as a girl; a passion she attributes to the influence of her grandfather. She always knew her future career would involve working with animals in some capacity.
She attended Virginia Tech for undergraduate, and you will often find her sporting her maroon and orange. She graduated with Dr. Wolff from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Her career path took her to Palmetto Regional Emergency Hospital for Animals in Columbia, SC where she specialized in emergency and critical care medicine. In 2012, she relocated to Round Rock, TX to continue practicing emergency and critical veterinary care at Heart of Texas Emergency Veterinary Specialty Center and to learn from the multiple specialists in this facility including board-certified surgeons, cardiologist, internal medicine doctors, radiologist, ophthalmologists and oncologists. She was able to take advantage of multiple opportunities to offer services at regional pet rescue shelters for vaccination and spay and neuter clinics, and thoroughly enjoyed being able to give back to the local community through these programs. In 2015, when the opportunity to become a part of a community clinic in North Carolina was presented, she was very pleased to once again return to the East coast and be closer to her family and friends.
Her professional interests include emergency care, long-term pain control and ultrasound. She also has interests in complementary medicine including acupuncture and chiropractic care, and plans to become certified in this field in the future. She is committed to improving animal health through owner education, preventative medicine and compassionate care of animals through all stages of their lives.
Dr. Lindsay met her significant other, Jonathan, while working in Texas. They now have a future heart-breaker son, Xavier, who completed their family in December, 2014. She is also owned by two very sweet German Shepherd shelter dogs: Brodie and Bruce who have been with her since graduate school as well as two veiled chameleons: Venus and Mars. Her personal interests include traveling, gardening, reading and spending time with family.
