Dr. DesMarteau, DVM
I am a Chicago area native and graduated in 2014 from University of Illinois with Bachelors in Animal Science before working as a veterinary technician for 2 years. I then completed my first 3 years of veterinary school at St. George’s University in Grenada and finished my clinical year at Virginia-Maryland in June 2021. I currently have 1 dog, Tig, who is a 4 year old “pot hound” (name for Caribbean island dogs); I obtained him after taking care of a a stray for the first couple months there, who we didn’t know was pregnant until she gave birth to 3 puppies in my bushes – during Midterm week! So we had to keep one. My passions in life outside of the veterinary field include music and well-being. I spend my free time attending concerts or music festivals and staying active by taking my dog on long walks, going to the gym frequently, and hiking – and when I have time after that I like to be crafty. I grew up in a family of 5 kids being the only girl – so I am big into sports, with the Chicago Cubs being my #1 !
