Dr. Elizabeth Hepner joined the Calvert Veterinary Center team in December. A Maryland native, she completed her undergraduate studies in biology, with a minor in animal and poultry sciences, at Virginia Tech. She went on to receive her doctorate of veterinary medicine from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, she decided it was time for an adventure. Within a few months of graduation, she found herself in Seattle, Washington. There, she enjoyed all aspects of Pacific Northwest culture and working as a general practitioner focused on providing the highest standard of care for pets. As with most great adventures, the road led her home. Hepner has returned to Maryland to be closer to friends and family. She is excited to be a part of the Calvert Veterinary Center team, to get to know pet owners, to give back to the Pasadena community, and to rediscover all that the area has to offer. Her family of pets includes a Vizsla named Summer and a cat named Cricket. Hepner has a particular interest in internal medicine and a passion for felines.
