After finishing her undergraduate studies at the University of South Carolina, Dr. Peterson completed her DVM at the Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. Following graduation, she practiced at both Indiana racetracks, working on Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, and Standardbred racehorses. In 2008, she became the Director of Animal Health Programs for the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. After nearly five years participating in regulatory medicine, she decided it was time to get back to private practice. Since 2012, she has been practicing small animal medicine with a strong interest in internal medicine, dentistry, and preventative care. Dr. Peterson enjoys spending time with her Labrador Retrievers, Vivian, Agnes, and Max. She also likes riding her horse, Biggie, painting, exercising, reading and being outdoors.
