Dr. Ladd earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in January 2024. She completed her clinical training at the University of California, Davis. Her passion for veterinary medicine began in high school when her family cat was diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. This event kick-started her passion for helping both animals and their loving family members.

To further her exposure to the field, she became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2016. Following this, she continued to work in general practice and emergency hospitals while completing her doctorate degree. This allowed her to not only refine her technical skills, but also have exposure to several different aspects of veterinary medicine. Her current veterinary interests include surgery, behavior, and both preventive and end-of-life care. Dr. Ladd enjoys taking time to communicate with and educate others about their furry family members. She takes pride in her skill of passing on knowledge in an informative yet easily understandable manner and strives to assist pet owners in making informed decisions regarding the health and comfort of their animals.

Dr. Ladd is a self-declared 'cat lady' and currently shares her home with two domestic shorthairs, the aforementioned family cat Bailey (who is now 15!) and Bailey's newest 'sister', Coraline. Outside of work, she enjoys gaming, visiting arcades, watching Tim Burton movies/collecting movie memorabilia, trying new foods, attending concerts, plays and musicals, and spending time with her friends, family and fiancé.
