Background and Education:
Veterinary School: University of California, Davis
Dr. Lisa Kim graduated from UCLA with a BS in Biology (Marine Emphasis), along with a minor in Scandinavian Studies. She worked as a veterinary technician until she started vet school at UC Davis, earning her DVM in 2003. Dr. Kim spent her first three years out of school working in mixed-animal medicine, treating cats and dogs, as well as cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and an occasional pot-bellied pig.
In 2006, this country mouse moved to the city, where Dr. Kim worked as a general and emergency veterinarian at a fast-paced hospital in San Francisco. She has particular interest in trauma and acute illness and finds that the most rewarding aspect of emergency medicine is being there for owners in a time of need. Dr. Kim enjoys spending time off with her husband, two daughters and son. They have two cats, Lisle and Bea, and a rescued labradoodle, Grizz. Once everyone is fed, walked, and put to bed, she enjoys crafting and even sells some of her goods at a local shop.
