Dr. Thoresen was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast in Australia and earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2018 at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. She is excited to begin her veterinary career with the Banfield team in sunny California and can't wait to start exploring the area. She loves working with all animals, but has a soft spot for dogs and especially puppies! Outside of work, Dr. Thoresen enjoys travel, unwinding on the beach and hiking in the mountains. She has an adorable Maltese dog named Maisie back in Australia who she misses like crazy.
