Dr. Lipovsky grew up in Maryland and majored in Biology at St. Mary’s College. After graduation, she worked first as a veterinary technician, then worked for about 10 years at NIH as a lab Biologist. Wanting to get back into small animal care, she went back to school and earned her degree in Veterinary Medicine at VA-MD School of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, VA. She and her husband, 3 dogs, and 3 cats moved to Maine about 15 years ago, and have discovered all the beautiful outdoor opportunities here, kayaking, skiing and running on the country roads. Community theater and singing are also favorite activities. The older 6 pets are no longer at home, but Gretel and George, a lively pair of Great Danes, occupy plenty of her attention (and space!).
