Growing up in the Chicago suburbs, Dr. Osborne always had a strong interest in animals. She loved visiting a friend’s farm and riding horses there on many weekends. On the farm, she also had the opportunity to help her friends with their 4-H activities, work with pigs and cows and play with their dogs. She loved learning about the animals. She also had a strong interest in science and medicine, making veterinary medicine the perfect career for her.
Dr. Osborne loves the human-animal bond and enjoys getting to know her patients and the people who love them. She believes it’s important to listen to, and create a relationship with owners in order to best help animals. She enjoys partnering with clients to learn about their pets and formulating plans to provide the best possible care for them.
