Dr. Neal had never dreamed of being anything other than a veterinarian. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Salisbury University, then went on to receive her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to her current position, Dr. Neal lived in Pennsylvania where she worked as a mixed animal practitioner, treating both companion animals and farm animals. Her desire to be closer to family in her home state of Maryland, as well as to focus her skills on companion animals, brought her to Banfield. Outside of work, Dr. Neal enjoys crafting and DIY projects, catching up on the latest binge-worthy Netflix shows, and spending time with her family, including her dog, Tilly, and three cats, Junior, Brody, and Manny.
