Dr. Olivia Schroeder hails from Virginia and obtained her veterinary degree from the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. She completed a year-long internship in equine ambulatory medicine at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine before spending a year working as an associate veterinarian at an equine-only private practice in central Virginia. Wishing to become further specialized in equine practice, she then went on to complete a residency in Equine Field Service and Sports Medicine at the New Bolton Center of the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine. She became board certified in equine practice by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in December 2012. After her residency, she continued to work for a year as a staff veterinarian in Equine Field Service at New Bolton Center before joining the staff at Northwest Equine in 2013.
Since joining Northwest Equine, Dr. Schroeder has spent a large amount of her time cultivating her skills in lameness diagnostics and treatment. She is a member of the International Society for Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP) and has attended several of their intensive meetings. She particularly enjoys following her patients along the path to recovery and watching them return to their jobs.
Dr. Schroeder has loved getting to know the Pacific Northwest and lives in Kent with her husband, their two children, and a variety of animals. She is looking forward to many more years of taking care of the horses of Northwest Equine and their owners.
