Dr. Grove grew up in the Northern Virginia area right outside of DC. She then moved to Blacksburg, Virginia where she spent 5 years at Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) earning her B.S. degree in animal and poultry sciences and a B.S. degree in biology. She graduated from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine 4 years later specializing in mixed animal medicine. Her special passion is for wildlife and zoo animal medicine, and she has had multiple externships in South Africa working with wildlife and exotic veterinarians to treat elephants, rhinos, zebras, cheetahs, dolphins, and many other large animals. Her dream is to one day return to exotic and wildlife medicine. In her spare time, Dr. Grove enjoys fencing epee, horseback riding, and spending time outdoors in nature with her golden retriever, Lilly. She is very active in her church and community, and loves volunteering for spay and neuter clinics whenever she can.
