Dr. Lattimer is originally from Cedar Falls, Iowa and joined Banfield in June 2017. She always had a love and interest in animals, the environment, and conservation of wildlife and natural resources. She attended Iowa State University to earn her bachelor's degree in animal ecology and worked at Iowa State University's Wildlife Care Clinic throughout her undergraduate career. Upon graduation, she completed an internship with the veterinary team at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, and then returned to Iowa to start veterinary school at Iowa State University. Her professional interests include small animal and exotics medicine, dentistry, soft tissue surgery, preventive care and acupuncture/alternative medicine. When not working, Dr. Lattimer loves to travel (she's trying to visit every continent) and get outside whenever possible but you're more likely to find her on the couch cuddling her two cats and rescue pup, Tommy.
