Like many people, Dr. Janet loves animals. This affinity led her to become a veterinarian so she could fulfill her dreams of improving the health of our furry friends. Shelter medicine, particularly high volume spay and neuter surgery, has become Dr. Janet’s area of expertise.
She has been the primary veterinarian at numerous animal shelters and is adjunct faculty at Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine where she teaches the advanced surgery elective rotation to 4th year students and Mount Wachusett Community College where she teaches surgical nursing and dentistry to vet tech students. Dr. Janet is the owner of Peaceful Pet Parting, an in-home euthanasia service.
Dr. Janet traveled to Thailand in 2017 as a study abroad instructor for pre-veterinary students. This was a life changing experience that combined her love of travel with her passion for helping animals. She returned to Thailand as a volunteer the following summer. In 2019, Dr. Janet taught a training course in India to new veterinary graduates and most recently, after discovering Sarah Wexler through mutual colleagues, she joined Pawesome and took part in both Myanmar and Ecuador.
Aside from her professional endeavors, Dr. Janet enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing board games, attempting to play ice hockey, and doting on her three furry children: Bronco, a black lab mix; Peanut, a blond chihuahua; and Tinkerball, a calico. She loves to take her dogs on hikes.
