Doctor Pace hails from Crown Point, Indiana, and for as long as she can remember, she wanted
to become a veterinarian. A Boilermaker at heart, Dr. Pace attended undergraduate and
veterinary school at Purdue University. Having externed at the Nashville, Birmingham, and
Columbian Park zoos, she has a deep interest for everything wild. She also spent four weeks in
South Africa volunteering for a wildlife capture and transport group; there she was able to
provide veterinary care for antelope species and zebra. She loves the challenges that come with
emergency medicine and helping families provide the best care for their pets.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Pace enjoys trying new foods, going to theme parks with her
fiancé, cuddling her chinchillas, fishing, playing card games, and relaxing around a bonfire with
her chocolate Labrador.
