Dr. Valerie Marino graduated from the University Of Florida College Of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. Her undergraduate degree in life science was received from Nova Southeastern University. Completing the DVM program was a lifelong goal for Dr. Marino. After graduation from vet school, she elected to participate in a large animal internship in Knoxville, Tennessee. After a year Dr. Marino decided that she had more love for the smaller species, specifically dogs and cats. She has been working at a general practice in Orlando, Florida for the last 16 years. At work she prides herself in forming bonds with her patients and their families. She enjoys learning about animal behavior and applying it to each individual animal. When not at work, Dr. Marino loves scrapbooking and movies. Her family includes her mother, sister, 2 nieces, 1 nephew, 2 dogs, and 5 cats.
Growing up in South Florida, Dr Myers spent the weekends snorkeling on the reefs of Ft. Lauderdale and camping in the woods in Ocala. She graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Zoology and continued her studies at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine where she graduated in 2008. She then joined a busy small animal practice where a high case load and complex medical cases allowed her to develop and hone her skills as a clinician. Dr. Myers has always had an interest in Ultrasonography since graduating vet school and utilized the technique as a general practitioner prior to becoming a full time Sonographer. Her clinical experience allows her to integrate the information from the ultrasound with her general knowledge of internal medicine to reach comprehensive assessments and treatment recommendations. Dr. Myers and her husband Ron have a little girl, Nali and a baby boy. Together they have two dogs, Kona and Switch, and two cats, Mowgli and Chavez. In her free time, she enjoys hiking in the woods, swimming in the ocean, and playing music with her husband.
