After graduating with distinction from her Biological Science degree at the University of Guelph, Dr. Anderson was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College. She graduated with honours in 2002 and began practicing as a small animal veterinarian. Wanting to improve her ability to better manage mobility in her patients she completed her canine rehabilitation certification through the University of Tennessee in 2013. In 2016, to provide better pain management for her patients and improve their outcomes, she became certified in Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians (MAV), through Curacore. For the last 5 years she has owned and operated SOAR Veterinary Services in Burlington, a fully functional CVO accredited referral Rehabilitation and Pain Management facility. In addition to running SOAR, Dr. Anderson has participated in CVO committees, and helps teach the Curacore MAV clinical intensive twice a year in Colorado. She has also virtually hosted vet students taking the rehabilitation rotation at Michigan State University. She is an active member of the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians, and International Veterinary Association of Pain Management. In her spare time she can be found at the barn watching her daughter ride horses, or at the theater enjoying her son’s performances in musical theater.
