After graduating high school, Dr. Emily Feldman took a gap year and lived in Israel for a year working on local farms and traveling (and finding her dog Izzy). She graduated New York University in 2015 as a biology major and worked as a laboratory technician training Rhesus Macaque monkeys for a year prior to applying to veterinary school. She then graduated from Cornell University with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2021.
When Dr. Feldman was 18 years old, she rescued her dog Izzy from a garbage can in Israel and raised her there for a year before bringing her back to the USA. Izzy is now 11 years old and thriving on 10 mile hikes in Denver!
Dr. Feldman is also certified in advanced open water scuba diving, and enjoys taking bike trips to explore new places in her free time.
