Dr. Foster was born in Midland, Texas but spent most of her youth in the greater Houston area. After attending Texas A&M University both for undergraduate as well as veterinary school, she was ready to explore a bit farther than the Texas border. Her first job out of school in 2011 was with Banfield Pet Hospital in Matthews, NC, just outside of Charlotte. In 2015, Dr. Foster was given an opportunity to move to Asheville. She has loved being in the mountains and enjoys the challenging, yet rewarding, work that Banfield continues to provide. Dr. Foster has two guinea pigs, Nargle and Remus, who reflect her love for all things Harry Potter, and two rescue dogs, Suzee and Marla, who keep her on her toes.
