Dr. Misty McNeil was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She graduated from Western Washington University with a B.A. degree in psychology. While earning her degree, she realized she wouldn't be happy doing anything other than being a Veterinarian, a dream she had since a child. After spending several years volunteering and working for various veterinary hospitals and shelters, Dr. McNeil attended veterinary school at Washington State University. While not taking care of her patients, she enjoys spending time with her husband hiking, backpacking, rock-climbing, and general adventuring. Dr. McNeil has a border collie named Blaze, a spunky cairn terrier mix named Axel, and a judgmental cat named Shrimp.
