Dr. Rachel Ellison lives on a mountain in Utah with her husband, daughter, and son, as well as their animal menagerie— a Bernese Mountain Dog, an orange tabby cat, and a Bengal/Siamese mix, as well as numerous chickens.  During her free time, she enjoys being with those she loves, cooking and baking, reading, hiking, and exploring nature and the world around her.  


Working in veterinary medicine for over a decade, Dr. Ellison has learned that she loves teaching and helping others (animal or human), preventive medicine, and preserving the animal-human bond.  She has had experience writing both veterinary-related and non-veterinary-related articles for various companies and websites- including PetKeen! 


Dr. Ellison received her bachelor's degree in Zoology at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) and then her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University in 2013. She is currently licensed to practice veterinary medicine in the state of Utah.
