A native of Bangor, Dr. Leah has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 9 years old and started volunteering at Broadway Animal Hospital when she was just 12! She eventually got her first paying job at that same hospital at 15, then went on to earn her DVM from Cornell University in 1994. Dr. Leah has worked at several other local practices including Forest Avenue Veterinary and ARL, and says she most enjoys emergency care and surgery.
While she does have more cats than dogs at home, Dr. Leah says she doesn’t have a favorite and needs both canines and felines in her life. Her pets include Pablo, a rescue dog from New Mexico, Valerie, a feral cat, and Jimothy, who she describes as a “tongueless feline circus freak”.
When she’s not working, Dr. Leah enjoys swimming, biking, painting, gardening, and cooking, as well as spending time with her human family: husband Greg and three sons Drew, Charlie, and Nick. She also indulges herself with clothes and chocolate every chance she gets!
