Dr. Borland joined the Abbey Pet Hospital team in 2016. She grew up in Pennsylvania where her passion for veterinary medicine began at the early age of 12 volunteering for a local veterinary hospital. She earned her undergraduate degree at Boston College and then went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her VMD. After graduation Dr. Borland, looking to escape the harsh east coast winters, headed west and has been practicing in the bay area since 2007. She feels honored to be a part of caring for pets and the humans they love, and focuses on delivering excellent patient care with understanding and compassion. In her off time she enjoys indulging her amateur foodie title exploring new restaurants, going on hikes with her dog Picxie, and feeding her love for music, art and literature.
