Dr. Puccinelli joined the South City Banfield in 2015. She grew up in Wisconsin until she left to attend St Louis University (SLU) and received her undergraduate degree. From there, she left for Ohio State and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. Her favorite part of her work day is snuggling all of the pets we see and singing to them throughout the day. She is especially passionate about our smaller breeds and dachshunds as she has one of her own. Her hobby is Irish dancing, which she was involved in for 17 years. In her free time, Dr. Puccinelli loves spending time with her husband, Stephen, and their pets, a dachshund named Penny, a kitty named Marco and turtle, Stewart.
