DIRECTOR OF SHELTER MEDICINE, DR. VICTORIA KOEHLER

 

Dr. Koehler is originally from New Jersey where she was raised with dogs, cats, and horses, which inspired her passion for veterinary medicine at an early age. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology and Psychology from Tufts University in Boston.

Dr. Koehler’s professional interests include shelter medicine, surgery, wound care, and increasing access to vet care. She is incredibly excited to be a part of the Furry Friends team and cannot wait to meet everyone involved with this prestigious organization and provide the highest quality care to our shelter patients. In her spare time, Dr. Koehler enjoys traveling, hiking, running, paddle boarding, cooking, and snorkeling.

She is working on visiting all of the US National Parks – and has visited 33 so far! She lives in Jupiter with her husband, their rescued Golden Retriever, Parker, and fluffy black cat, Luna.
