Dr. Schmitz

Dr. Schmitz

Veterinarian

Dr. Schmitz was originally born in Oceanside, CA but was in a military family so they moved around quite frequently including Japan and North Carolina to name a few. Ultimately her family found their way to Columbus, OH where they would settle down and call home. Dr. Schmitz has always had a love for animals from a young age whether it be family pets, stuffed animals she cared for or ponies at parties. This led her to The Ohio State University where she attended for both her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences and then her doctorate in Veterinarian Medicine. While obtaining her doctorate from The Ohio University she graduated in the top twenty five percent of her class. In addition she received awards in Ophthalmology, Anesthesia, and Community Practice while obtaining her DVM.
