Dr. Emily Baldwin
Dr. Emily Baldwin grew up in Gillette, Wyoming, where she discovered that she wanted to be a veterinarian at a very young age. She attended Iowa State University for undergrad and graduated from Colorado State University with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2014.
Dr. Baldwin moved to Phoenix from Colorado Springs, CO where her husband was stationed with the US Army and where she spent her first three years practicing at a small animal hospital. From Colorado, the Baldwins brought with them their two rescue golden retrievers, Shadow and Ely, and Wilbur the Wildcat, an orange and white tabby.
Emily is passionate about preventative care including dentistry, and has particular interests in soft tissue surgery, oncology, and internal medicine. In her free time, she loves traveling, singing, hiking, backpacking, cooking, running, yoga, and gardening. You can frequently find the Baldwins curled up on the couch with the dogs after a long day.
Rachael Palmatier, CVT
Born and raised in upstate New York, I followed my family to Arizona in December 2009. Needless to say this was a major change in my life that I was unsure if I was able to adapt to. Slowly but surely, the Arizona sun warmed my heart and I met the man who would become my husband in 2011. Having new inspiration to be a better me with support from family and love I decided to pursue my passion to work with animals. I attended Pima Medical Institute obtaining an associates degree in applied veterinary sciences. I then tested and became a certified veterinary technician in early 2014 working in general practices around the Phoenix area since. My peak interests are dental / oral medical care as well as senior/geriatric care for dogs and cats. Currently my fur babies are Davey Jones a 5 year old brindle mixed breed dog and Seymour Krampus a 3 ½ year old grey and white cat.
