Dr. Jake Brown earned his Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from the College of William and Mary and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, he pursued further training by completing an intensive internship at the large specialty/emergency hospital in North Carolina. Upon finishing, he stayed on as an emergency clinician for an additional year. Seeking a change in pace, Dr. Brown and his wife moved to Maui in 2014. He initially worked relief emergency shifts at VERC before eventually transitioning to general practice at a progressive small animal hospital on Maui.
During his varied experiences, Dr. Brown developed a strong interest in the field of veterinary pain management and canine physical therapy. To further these interests, he subsequently obtained his certification in Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians (cVMA) and Canine Rehabilitation (CCRP) through the University of Tennessee.
He owned and operated a pain management and rehabilitation clinic on Maui for six years before returning to VERC to begin a rehabilitation department.
