Dr. Chadha joined Banfield in September 2017 and started at the San Jose Meridian location in December of that year. She grew up on the East Coast and has enjoyed being around animals since a young age. She had the pleasure of horseback riding, working at a sheep farm while in college, and volunteering at Mystic Marie Life Aquarium with seals and sea lions. Dr. Chadha's love of animals led her to pursue a pre-veterinary curriculum at Virginia Tech where she graduated with a degree in biochemistry. Upon graduation, she worked at the National Institutes of Health, and then as a veterinary technician prior to attending veterinary school at Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Chadha has practiced small animal veterinary medicine for 14 years in Northern CA, Southern CA, Indiana, and Illinois. During her free time, she enjoys hiking, yoga, volunteering in her son's school, traveling and photography.
