Dr. Matthews recently relocated from Illinois to South Carolina to be closer to family, which is a decision she does NOT regret! Originally from New Jersey, she graduated from the University of Scranton with a bachelor's degree in biology and subsequently graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine after completing her clinical rotations at Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Matthews has spent the last 5 years practicing at an AHHA accredited small animal clinic in Illinois focusing on feline friendly practices and Fear Free techniques. She also worked closely with a large pit bull rescue, so pitties hold a special place in her heart. Dr. Matthews and her husband have 2 pups at home, Duke (Australian cattle dog) and Tucker (Australian cattle dog/corgi mix), who are spoiled to the max!
