Dr. Mayers is originally from the western NY area. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Cornell University in 1992 and her veterinary degree from the University of Florida in 1997. Upon graduation, she moved to Chicago, IL where she worked as a general practitioner for 15 years.
As a general practitioner, she always had a strong interest in the care of senior pets. This interest expanded to include rehabilitation and alternative medicine when her own senior dog developed mobility issues. Dr. Mayers completed her certification as a canine rehabilitation therapist in 2012 and her certification in veterinary acupuncture in 2015. For the past 8 years, she has been working exclusively in the field of canine rehabilitation and sports medicine in NC and PA and she is excited to return home to Buffalo with her dog, Rylie.
