Welcome to our practice, Dr. Barnhart!
Dr. Barnhart joined our KVet staff early in November, and is now integrating well into our team.
Before coming to join us, Dr. Barnhart had been practicing in a veterinary practice in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
That is the area where she grew up.
Like many of us, the road took some interesting turns along the way.
Out of high school, Dr. Barnhart worked for several years as a Certified Massage Therapist.
When she decided to go back to school, she went to Northern Michigan University.
Then she graduated with her veterinary degree from Ohio State in 2009.
When Dr. Barnhart was recently looking for a new place to live and practice, she told me "that Western Pennsylvania is simply the best place to be!"
She also tells me that she is very excited to be joining a dynamic, progressive practice with experienced integrative practitioners.
Again, well, yeah!
From the pictures that she gave me, she clearly loves spending time outside with her dog. I'm told that she enjoys this with her husband too.
They also have a daughter who is in Michigan.
