Lara de Courtivron

Dr. Lara de Courtivron held sev­eral posi­tions in busi­ness, but was reminded of her true pas­sion when she adopted a stray Chi­huahua mix named Dex­ter off the streets of Miami.

When she turned 30, she moved to Boston, MA, where she took post-baccalaureate pre-medical courses at Tufts Uni­ver­sity and UMass Boston, while work­ing as a vet­eri­nary tech­ni­cian at a small ani­mal hos­pi­tal.

She then attended the Uni­ver­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia School of Vet­eri­nary Med­i­cine in Philadel­phia, PA.
