Dr. Collier knew at the age of 8 that she wanted to be a veterinarian, when her dog was saved by a doctor in Mississippi following a car accident. One of her favorite parts of working as a veterinarian is the opportunity to develop relationships with clients and work with them to keep their pets healthy. She shares her home with four dogs, Coogan, Stitch, Demon and Munny, all rescues from local shelters.
Dr. Collier has a particular interest in reproductive medicine.
Outside of work, she’s a self-proclaimed ‘Super Soccer Mom!’ as the mother of three wonderful children. She has run half-marathons and can’t get enough of her home-town Philadelphia Phillies baseball team.
