Dr. Fiessinger grew up in Dayton, Ohio. She knew from a young age that she wanted to
be a veterinarian, and started volunteering at shelters and horse barns to gain animal
experience in high school. She also spent some time in Italy working with exotic animals
during veterinary school.
Dr. Fiessinger attended University of Montevallo in Alabama for her undergraduate
education and collegiate volleyball, and spent summers interning in small animal
practices. She continued her academic career at Purdue University, where she pursued
her veterinary degree. Initially Dr. Fiessinger planned on pursuing general practice but
fell in love with emergency medicine and surgery in her clinical year at Purdue. She
loves the excitement and variability that the ER offers.
When not working, Dr. Fiessinger enjoys playing sand volleyball, hiking, and doing
anything outside. In the fall, she enjoys watching the Cincinnati Bengals and Purdue
football. She has a red Doberman named Jocko, who enjoys going on runs with her.
