Dr. Child was raised in northern Utah where she received her undergraduate degree from Utah State University in Bio-veterinary Science. She then moved to Pullman, Washington where she attended Washington State University and received her doctor of veterinary medicine in 2003. During a student internship in the Florida Keys, Dr. Child realized she liked the heat much more than the cold and moved to Miami, Florida right after graduation. She worked as an emergency doctor for 7 years and then in general practice for 8 years. In the summer of 2018, Dr. Child and her family decided to move to the South Bay where her husband, Mike was raised.
Dr. Child spends most of her free time with her husband, son and daughter. They all enjoy hiking, playing board games and playing on the beach. Dr. Child also enjoys running (slowly) with her dog, Ginger- a Labrador/ Doberman mix and trying to keep her 2 calico cats out of trouble. Her slower time is spent gardening and reading.
Her professional interests include advanced dentistry, surgery, behavior and dermatology.
