Dr. Reed always had a deep love for animals and a passionate curiosity for science. She began working with animals as soon as she was old enough, and developed a varied résumé that included working at a zoo, helping the visually impaired with their seeing-eye dogs, demonstrating animal care to children at a science museum as well as a reptile education centre, working with marine animals, and even grooming animals in a pet salon.
Dr. Reed studied biology at Reed College in Portland Oregon, and then completed a Master’s degree in Biology at Bowling Green State University. She also did coursework and research for a Masters degree in Public Health (specializing in Veterinary Public Health) but was accepted to the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph to begin her veterinary degree before she completed her public health degree. In 2013, she moved to Sudbury to start a new adventure. Dr. Reed has special interests in surgery, internal medicine, ultrasonography, and public health.
Dr. Reed lives with her husband and son, and has two adult step-children. She has three dogs; Megabyte is an older gal and looks like Petey from The Little Rascals. Terabyte has a heart shaped nose and was a Parvovirus survivor at a clinic at which she was working during her final year of studies in veterinary school. Nanobyte is a goofy, shy Great Dane puppy who was delivered by Dr. Reed’s own hands in summer of 2014. In her spare time, Dr. Reed enjoys going on adventures with her son, cooking, traveling, doing various crafts and running, as well as working on her French with her in-laws.
