Dr. Schroer grew up in Delaware where she completed her undergraduate degree in animal science. She moved to California in 1993 to attend graduate school at UC Davis. After completing a master’s degree in physiology in 1996, she spent two years working in a small community in Ecuador as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Following this great adventure, she came back to California and entered veterinary school at UC Davis.
Dr. Schroer began her career as a veterinarian at Ferndale Veterinary in 2003. Four years later, she moved to Sonoma County and spent 10 years working in both large animal and small animal practices. She eventually returned to Humboldt County, where she is very happy to get back to both small-town life and mixed animal practice.
Dr. Schroer spends much of her free time exploring backroads and trails on her bicycle. She shares her home with a feisty orange cat named Ginger.
