After an 18-year nursing career, she returned to school and furthered her study of medicine. She blended her love of animals and working with people into a career in veterinary medicine.  She is a 2002 graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and went on to advance her education with a small-animal internship at Regional Veterinary Referral Center in Washington DC. Dr Bryant is still amazed at the similarities between our pets’ medical conditions and our own.

Dr. Bryant’s professional interests include helping pets stay healthy throughout their lives (specifically through preventative care), geriatric medicine, general surgery, pain management, and hospice care.

She is an avid downhill skier and has been a member of the national ski patrol and assisted in the medical training for new patrollers. Her love of all things snow-related was no small influence when it came time to find a puppy. Dr. Bryant and her husband had the privilege of sharing their home for 8 ½ years with Cooper, a lovable Bernese Mountain Dog. Cooper’s passing due to cancer in June of 2017 is the inspiration for Heartfelt Hospice, a palliative care and hospice service offered by To Your Door Vet.
