Growing up in New Jersey, Dr. Lisa developed a passion for helping animals. She set forth into the world to become a veterinarian on a mission. Dr. Lisa completed her undergraduate degree at Syracuse University with a major in public relations and a concentration in biology. She then completed rigorous pre-med training at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation from Western University Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine, she performed an internship at Bluepearl Veterinary Partners in New York City. Following the completion and sleepless nights of her internship, she wanted to make NYC her home. Determined to offer pets a gentler kind of veterinary service, she founded Vet's in the City.

Her hands are in everything pet related. From talking to Dr. Oz about pet safety tips to conducting pet first-aid and CPR first response classes. Dr. Lisa belongs to the board and is the Medical Director of Animal LightHouse Rescue, whose mission is to help homeless animals of Puerto Rico find forever homes.
