Growing up in Florida, Dr Myers spent the weekends snorkeling on the reefs of south Florida and camping in the woods in the center of the state. 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 private 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 is married to her husband Ron and just recently had a baby girl, Nali. 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.
