Dr. Nowell earned her DVM degree from Western University of Health Sciences in 2014 and BSc degree in biology from California State University, Long Beach. Outside of work, she currently serves the veterinary community as a representative to the CVMA's House of Delegates and on the SCVMA's Board of Trustees. Her professional interests include all things feline, dermatology, behavior, and her dream is to treat a Hippogriff. She currently shares her home with six rescues -- Ryan, her fiance, George, the dog, Pandacat, Avery, Penny, and Little Swirr (4 cats!). But her house is not only for the land dwelling. She also has a fish tank for Steph Curry, the snail, and ghost shrimp (but no fish).
