Dr. Wood completed her undergraduate education at UCLA and graduated from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in June of 2007. She did an internship after graduation at the Mid Atlantic Equine Medical Center in New Jersey. After one year in private equine practice, she decided to switch small-animal practice and joined the Banfield team in Hamilton, New Jersey in 2009. In 2012, she was named Chief of Staff of that location. In the spring of 2013, she moved back to California with her then fiancé, where she helped open a new Banfield location here in Santa Rosa. Dr. Wood and her husband were married in June 2013 in her hometown of Sonoma. They love dogs, and also like to play tennis, go hiking and bike riding in their free time. Dr. Wood is still trying to convince her husband to get a kitten, but they do have a corgi named Edward who is aging gracefully.
