A Bit About Me
Growing up in Sugar Land Texas, Dr. McCarthy took interest in becoming a veterinarian at 12 years old. Her childhood dog had a complicated birth when she was home alone. Dr. McCarthy went into caretaker mode immediately without panic and later realized how much she loved the idea of becoming a veterinarian. Before veterinary school, Dr. McCarthy worked as a large animal ICU tech for two years, as well as a discharge/ER tech at Metropolitan Veterinary Associates.
Dr. McCarthy attended undergrad at Texas A&M University and went on to veterinary school at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. She was the president of the One Health Club. Dr. McCarthy's professional interests include tick borne illnesses, emergency, and ultrasounds.
Dr. McCarthy says, her favorite aspect of being a veterinarian is, "Seeing someone's pet run back to their owner excitedly after any illness. Knowing I helped that happen."
Dr. McCarthy has a Border Collie Cross named Coal whom she loves training in agility courses. She also enjoys hiking and yoga in her spare time.
