FUN STAFF FACTS
Dr. Saul completed an internship in South Africa where she worked with the “Big Five” large wildlife animals – buffalo, elephants, leopards, lions, and rhinoceros.
Dr. Saul grew up in Chicago’s northwest suburbs. As a child, she and her family frequently took road trips to the Appalachia region of the country. Their trips often included visits to some impoverished areas. While visiting some of those areas, they saw stray animals in need of food and medical care. Often times, her family would bring multiple dogs home with them, getting them the medical care they needed and finding them forever homes. This experience inspired her to find a way to help animals. Shadowing at a local veterinary hospital, she discovered a career path that would allow her to make a fundamental difference in the lives of animals. As she says, she was instantly hooked!
At West Loop Veterinary Care, Dr. Saul seeks to put both the patient and their family at ease while providing high-quality medical care and minimizing the pet’s stress at being in an unfamiliar place. She is a Fear Free Certified Professional. During patient visits, Dr. Saul enjoys witnessing the bond between a pet and their family. She aims to strengthen that bond by providing high-quality medical care that keeps pets happy and healthy. Her priority is to find the best care options for each patient and their family.
Dr. Saul earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Illinois. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science at Michigan State University. Her experience includes research on a dairy farm and an internship in South Africa where she had the privilege of working with the Big Five Game Animals – buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhinoceros. She has also worked at a primary care veterinary hospital in the Chicago area, helping provide care for cats and dogs.
Dr. Saul has always wanted to live in Chicago and is excited to now make her home in the city with her cat, Peter Parker, who she adopted from a local shelter the year prior to starting medical school. Dr. Saul says Peter was her rock throughout her schooling and was a great source of joy to her during some of the hardest days of her life.
In her free time, Dr. Saul enjoys spending time with her parents, sisters and her new nephew. She also enjoys hiking, traveling, crocheting, playing the violin and trying out Chicago’s many restaurants.
